I don't like adverising my failures, but seeing as I have bleated on about the pigeons you may as well see what I was talking about. And besided if Soilman can show you his manky compost heap...and yes, I just couldn't resist the pun.
Taking advantage of the lowered net the pigeons gave the cavelo nero a haircut:
When the snow weighed down the netting they stripped the curly kale:
Here's a plant they couldn't get at (just to remind me what we I'm missing)
And just to cheer me up here's this year's brassica patch. Last year's is to the right of the picture. I've dosed it with lime today. Note the sturdy posts between which I am going to stretch chicken wire. Its a narrower strip than last year and I will put in a few tall canes centrally, once I top it out with plastic netting, after planting out. Confucious said (something like) A wise man learns from his mistakes - and a genius learns from the mistakes of others.
