Miscanthus has developed an interest in the two-year old compost heap. It is fair to say that there is a very high chance that a rat family has moved in which is great for me as it will give the dogs a reason to get out of bed this winter, they will spend a lot of time  digging out the rat family. I just hope that the rats are not going to start to eat the gourds on the heap to get enough fat for the winter…..a new war has begun I fear.

  1. I am really enjoying your Blog. I live in Victoria, B.C., Canada. A very similar climate. We live five minutes from downtown, but are plagued with deer! We have fenced the vegetable garden, but still have to contend with rabbits, squirrels, raccoons and now a wretch who ate the beans out of the pods of my broad beans. It has now got into the greenhouse and is eating the Concord grapes one at a time and spitting out the seeds. So far it has not attacked the tomatoes. Wildlife – ugh!
