We've left them there for now. Hopefully they will be safe from the Houdini/horrible heifer, who is proving to be quite a garden fiend. She's munched down some of our corn, so the remaining plants are well guarded. That is, I keep a watchful eye upon them and launch myself out of the house at a great rate of knots if I see/hear her anywhere near the area. I scared shit out of her the other day. Literally.
Those agapanthus I planted back in August had buds and I was looking forward to seeing the flowers. Nope. Tea taste-tested them and munched the plants down to about a third of their size. Between her and the chookies, a lot of my good work was undone.
What's that saying? If at first you don't succeed ... Our cow is very trying, that's for sure!
