Most of you will have realised by now that we live in a park home in a country setting. The home belongs to us but it sits on rented land and we have lived here for 6 years after downsizing from our 3 bed detached in town. Last year I blogged about our meagre food harvest and my awful gardening skills but wanted to carry on growing something again this year, anything that we can grow to eat will help the budget. Well b*gg*r me, we have recently been told that we are simply not allowed to grow food because it will attract rats! The question was asked " are these PEAS?"
"No...they are sweetpeas....."
But these are! They are at the back out of sight!
And we have POTATOES too!
We haven't had rats in 6 years so why should they decide to pay us a visit now? Anyway, they do say that you are never more than 6 feet from a rat wherever you live. My veg will be staying for this year at least. Slugs are more of a problem, in reality. They beat me to the best strawberries :/
How is your veg growing doing?
