Deep fried sage leaves are very tasty.
Yes it's the pigeons that are a problem.I have offcuts of chicken wire that I make a tunnel with to pop over my seedlings as they come through. It works very well as I can move them about as needed and don't need supports like netting does. I have netted my fruit bushes too or they'd have it all before it got ripe! Little blanks!
I lost all my blackcurrants to them last year, and a good part of my redcurrants too.
I'm determined to win this year.
Blackbirds are rather partial to fruit too I've noticed.
trap them and eat them

Can't believe we don't have a thread for this! So here's my little front garden setup:

Sorry for the bad pic by the way. The only angle I can get is from the front room window! In the two wooden planters I have potatoes, the left bed has 3 rows of onions, and a row of potatoes, the top right bed is rammed with strawberries, the lower right bed has leeks, a courgette (in the middle of the leeks) and a couple of sweetcorn, plus two rows of potatoes, then I have two bucket planters with.... more potatoes! I'm going big on potatoes this year if you haven't guessed.

I'm really looking forward to a big crop of strawberries this year, they are heavily laden, I just need to be vigilant with the birds and slugs! Any tips for that???

How are you all getting on with your patches?
Mostly older and grumpier
