An enigma shrouded in a mystery!
I wonder if anyone can offer a solution to a strange happening in our garden? Yesterday morning we found a tomato on the ground near the plants. It looked a clean break ... cut? ...but it was only a smallish tomato - not one of the giants that we thought would have fallen of its own accord. Now, this afternoon, we have found a small red lettuce cleanly sheared off, apparently broken, at the stalk at ground level. Is this evidence of mice or rats? I'm sure there are plenty of both around even though we have never seen the animals themselves - after all, we are surrounded by barns containing animal winter feed, sheep, goats and chickens. We are at a loss to know what has caused this damage - or what we can do about it. Any ideas? ........ anyone? ........
