Possums in the garden. And I am LIVID. They have made merry and destroyed rows of garlic plants, broad beans, cauliflowers, parsley and to top it off had dessert from the mandarin tree in the orchard. Of course they don't even eat the plants, just snap them off and move on to the next thing in their path.

I am cranky to say the least and saddened too. Lots of work goes into growing food and to have it all destroyed in one fell swoop by a full-moon crazed possum. Ooh best not even say. I feel like Mr McGregor on his farm.

But I still keep working. Hoping I can do something about the marauding beasts. I have a helper today. And it's nice to have someone to talk to.

Fingers crossed for success with plan possum.
