noun - one who infiltrates
verb - to gain entrance gradually or surreptitiously into enemy-held territory with hostile intent
An unknown creature has overcome the obstacle of our vegie patch fencing and has taken to scoffing the newest seedlings. It has ignored the large quantity of well established plants and went straight for the delicate and the young. Little bastard. We are not sure if we are dealing with an insect or a rodent, we suspect a wee small rodent. I'm thinking of putting a tray of clean, smooth sand out in front of my massacred carrot bed to see if we snag any forensic evidence aka footprints. In the meantime I am trying a bit of free plastic protection cut from milk bottles over the broccolini seedlings that still have a few leaves left. Watch this space....
Next will be filling the holes with Water Putty then sanding again. Then, after we paint the boards, they will be as smooth as a baby's bottom. Nice.
