He he, I remember when I was about your sons age I used to pull up my Fathers onions every day and he replanted them every evening. He used to say that that year he had the best onions everWashing of a tiny celery root plant. With overzealous energy to eat what they've grown the kids often pull up plants before they are ready.
We had a similar intruder last summer. Very destructive.My wildflower (weed?) border is now attracting another visitor who is intent on doing damage.
A Bank Vole, looks innocent enough doesn't it, hmm, while I was watching it it ventured into the border and pretended to be a Beaver, a plant shook for about 10-15 seconds and then over it went.
Will I ever see any flowers?
