This morning I went to my garden specifically for lettuce leaves. Now, my garden isn’t the type with neat rows and labelled beds, I prefer a bit of chaos. My garden is packed. Every plant must fight for space and light. Finding lettuce leaves means looking everywhere.
After breakfast, I went back to the garden to do some general maintenance. As I approached, I could see extensive damage to many of the garden beds. Leaks chewed, Kale missing, seedlings trampled and onions ripped out of the dirt. With Possum scat everywhere, it was easy to see who the culprits were.
Why didn’t I notice the damage when I was in the garden earlier? Was I still half-asleep? Possums are nocturnal so they didn’t do it during my breakfast. Am I going crazy?
