Our once flourishing tommy plan was rudely demolished in the cover of darkness the other night. We awoke to find one of the stakes bent right to the ground providing a nice little ramp for our resident possums to climb up and devour our juicy produce.
I had gone to great lengths to protect the budding tomatoes that were growing, by placing the toe of a stock over EACH ONE and then stapling it in place.
The possums managed to de-bunk my protection methods and ripped the toms off the tree and ate through the stocking.

We are so annoyed. I am no longer allowed to mention the words “possum” or “tomato” in the house.
what annoys me even more is that they left them HALF eaten!!!
Apologies for my bloggin absence - with a wedding to plan (only SIX weeks now!!!) I ahve been pretty crazy!!!!
