I'm quite annoyed at the moment. 

I woke up this morning to find that foxes have ruined our veg walls in the garden.

Before we started planting things out, they had dug in the walls. Ian put up a large net on one wall and a 'stick barrier' on the other to try and deter them.

It did not work.

We had Broad Beans & Leeks growing nicely. Carrots, Parsnips, Onions, Broccoli, Sprouts and Cabbages seeds sown and starting to pop up. 

I had a look to see if I could salvage anything (hoping to not find poo), but only 2 Broad Bean and Mange Tout plants were saved (luckily no poo).

 They have all been destroyed. All the seeds have probably got mixed up, which is going to be so annoying when we get back on track! We'll find Parsnips where the Carrots are meant to be....pain in the arse!

Have Foxes been a problem for you? What do you do to stop them?

This weekends job is to re-sow EVERYTHING, and possibly get a pollytunnel to stop them once and for all. I just hope we haven't missed any time slots for anything.

I totally have a vendetta against foxes now.

: (

Luckily the things they did not touch are doing well.

We have leaves on the Raspberry Canes.

 The Daffodils are all lined up nicely, bobbing in the breeze.

And an Apple Tree is blossoming nicely.

Fingers cross the foxes will kindly bugger off   stop visiting!

Happy Wednesday

  1. Oh dear..what a shame. How frustrating! We don't get foxes around our area, but I have had the neighbourhood cats digging up the freshly planted seed beds. I usually end up sticking lots of little branches/sticks around the bed, to stop them..this seems to work. Not sure if it would work with foxes though ?
    You should be fine planting all of those seeds again now, with the warm weather it shouldn't take long for them to catch up.
    I hope that the next crop will be fine for you..

  2. Oh no!! What a bunch of bu**ers! They did a hell of a mess, didn't they? I hope you can save something. The other plants in your garden are doing great indeed. :)

  3. Hate to tell you this, but the best way is to get hold of lion manure. Foxes wont come near...apparently!

  4. Oh hun what a shame! They are buggers aren't they.

  5. Oh No! That is so frusterating! I've never had a problem with foxes. My biggest enemy around here are squirrels. They dig up everything. So annoying! One year they dug up every single bulb I planted. I was so mad! Good luck with the re-do this weekend. Fingers crossed they won't come back again. Everything else you planted is looking wonderful : )
