Cute Garden Nemesis

Posted on April 11, 2010


We have had our first glimpse this year of the beast that stalks our garden.

As we were getting ready to head off on our camping Weekend in the High Peak, there it was sunning itself in my drystone vegetable bed.

It’s evil.

It digs the very seeds out of my plant pots.

It chops my french bean stalks off at ground level.

It feeds when no one is watching and then hides itself in the cracks in the wall.

But look…


It’s so cute it hurts!

I think I’d rather have an evil looking garden foe. Something that I feel better about targeting.

I am currently thinking of a ‘work around’ so that I don’t have to deal with the tiny critter.

His cockiness to sit there whilst I took this was quite enchanting.

Until I realised that he was so snoozy because he just eaten one of my plants.
