Seriously, now. Is nothing sacred anymore? This was in a pot and on the raised deck. The intemperance of this rotten, veggie eating monster astounds me. The only way to reach the deck would be to climb the blasted stairs and walk across the railing, unless it's a bird, which it might be. Precocious little snot.
*sigh* Scrap the whole pot? or do you think it will mend itself? I've never grown chard before to know.
Not only was this devoured, but I came home today and a bird was spooked out of my radish bed and a lizard crawled back into the sweet potatoes.
Please let this be a seasonal thing. Please let this be a seasonal thing. Please let this be a seasonal thing.
However I'm sure it's not. Time to start thinking of Spring measures that won't be to heinously ugly or expensive.
