Guesses on a postcard please!

Anyone out in blogland got any ideas what is skillfully stealing my peas, splitting them open and eating them! The netting is over everything but the little b@ggers are still getting to them......grrrr






Oh how I wish I had a camera. Hope your weekend is going well. No rain yet, rain dance this evening as everything is do dry and water butts very low.   Tx

  1. When I was a small child I was told off several times for eating the peas and leaving the empty pods hanging. Then one day my Granny spotted out dog crawling along the pea row stopping every now and then to squeeze a pod till it popped and slurping the peas out. She also used to pull ripe raspberries off and leave the white hull on the stem. Your culprit could well be a mouse, they love peas.

    1. As Tom would say, I hate those meeces to pieces! I think they are SAS mice to get through the laberynth of netting, canes and string!

    1. Lovely to hear from you Kirrie, I hope all is good with you. The mice have good taste, the peas have such a sweet taste fresh from the pod.

  5. Possibly mice but they must be clever little monkeys to open the pods, maybe make a hide and try to catch them, lol

  6. Sounds like mice to me - you will have to get there first to beat them!

    1. I've never seen dropping in the garden etc so they are obviously doing a Pick Your Own holiday!

  7. Never seen mice eating fully grown peas but I can't see what else it could be. We have an allotment and a few years ago we had the most amazing crop of peas four double rows of 5 foot length each and decided we would pick them the following day. Unfortunately, someone else had also spied them and we came back the following day ready to pick only to find underneath every single row was a neat pile of empty pea pods (hundreds of them) The person who did it (and we had an idea who it was ) must have waited till we left that evening and popped in through the unlocked gate and spent quite some time picking and podding them, leaving us the empties. I was so upset but there was nothing we could do. From then on we put locks on the gates!I don't think we have lost anything since. Hope you stop the mice raiding your peas.
