Path Maintenance

After having my self planted over a hundred leeks and carefully netted them last week it was heart breaking to go down a few days later and find that something had chewed through the netting and eaten the very tip of every one of them!

Rabbits /squirrels are as we all know a real issue and although it is idealistic to think we can rabbit proof the entire allotment and make it a rabbit /squirrel free zone we can try and keep the numbers down as best as we can.

Both pests like cover and we can all do our bit to make life more difficult for them by keeping our plost well tended and the grass/weeds on the paths and surrounding areas as short as possible – otherwise we’ll be feeding the rabbits instead of ourselves!
