In this week's podcast a listener asks what can be done about a badger eating our veg. I also share the latest on the plots.
In this week's diary I talk about the following tasks
- harvesting my niece's small pumpkin
- my collection of flower pots
- planting out some seedlings
and much more.
Personally I find badgers to be pretty awesome. These animals have a reputation for being aggressive of which they can be when provoked. But they are really a problem in the vegetable garden where they can eat our homegrown food.
I have had the problem of dealing with badgers in the past and I found the best method was to restrict their access to your plants. A fence or barrier of some kind is best. However there are other methods but non of these I have tried as the barrier method has been successful for me. You can hear me discuss this in this podcast.
- Wikipedia page about the European badger
- An interesting site with everything you need to know about badgers.
- Some lion manure pellets designed to keep cats away which may or may not work with badgers.
