After 2 1/2 years, a lot of hard work and a running battle with neighbours (rabbit and human) we actually have a vegetable garden!



 Year 1

 Well, the fruit cage didn't last!   Rabbits and voles burrowed underneath it and destroyed all the strawberries and raspberries we'd brought down from Scotland.   The neighbour objected to it because we were growing crops on agricultural land (!?!) and then the wind marmelised it!   


For the first two years the only crops were potatoes as the rabbits didn't like them.   (They even ate the rhubarb leaves which are poisonous!)   What they didn't eat they bit the heads off and left on the ground.   Oh, we did have a few radishes that they somehow missed!


Year 2


Year 3


This year John has built up the barricades with chicken netting all round the plot and out at rightangles so they can't dig underneath it and has put windproof netting on the outside for a little protection against the elements and we have crops!
