Remember these?


The photo above was taken in June after brassicas had been ravaged by pigeons. The picture below of the same cabbages was taken this month. These cabbages weren't even netted just left as a stark reminder of the pigeons presence!

Or what about this?

Caterpllar Damage

This was our broccoli at the end of August - it had suffered a caterpillar attack whilst we were on holiday. We removed the caterpillars and now, just a few weeks later, it looks like this.

Moral: Don't be too quick to pull it up and throw it away!! The 'pests' don't always win.
