The Salad Thief



Where oh where did my (newly planted) salad go?


And this is what's left
 of my parsley...






It appears we have a new gopher in the neighbourhood.


Hmmm, what to do?

  1. Rosemary,there are good scare away devices against gophers and moles. one of these devices: it's a bottle, with bottleneck stuck in the ground near the hole.the bottleneck makes a sound that the moles and gophers hate.

    1. Thank you Nadezda, I'm hoping one of my neighbours is growing better tasting salad than I am and the gopher finds himself a new restaurant :)

  4. Oh! Dommage pour votre jardin !... Comment faire ? Je n'ai pas de véritables solutions à part adopter cet animal et lui apporter chaque jours sa ration de légumes!

    gros bisous à vous
