when you don't have time to weed

June 1 2011
The potatoes were coming through. We were fighting the wild boar for them but mostly winning (the gaps are where we 'donated' potatoes to the boar.)

Errrr.... yes. If you know what a potato leaf looks like you should be able to see that yes, they are still there. Rather well camouflaged by the weeds though huh? All that in just one month. Won't be able to hold my head up at all around the neighbourhood. The shame. Hang on.... camouflaged potatoes.... Not busy or slack- genius plan! How will the boars even realise there are potatoes in there with all that protective greenery? Fabulous excuse incredible rationale right?

Wrong. That bare patch would be where a boar has stopped for a snack. Obviously not an Atkinsing boar as he ate the 'taters and left all the greens. Hmmm maybe I'll pin my hopes on them getting metabolic syndrome from their high-carb diet?

I thought that was a great idea to camouflage the potatoes too. Excellent idea actually. You know I'd have thought that would have worked too. Was surprised they could actually still find the potatoes. Goodness those boars are crafty little fellas. ; )

crafty and hungry it seems. With exotic tastes- they dug up all the Andes potatoes and left the bog standard ones.... :(
