warning ugly pictures ahead ..

it's probably a good thing I didn't get to see the patch this week -- the damage from the crows just makes me sick -- buggers.

the melons rot after the holes get pecked in 'em .. and the aroma is not pretty ...

what a waste ...

they could at least eat the flippin thing.

and more aroma -- cow poop is getting hauled in by the semi load this weekend.  brown "gold" -- organic matter and well fertilizer all in one package!

after the 90' heatwave (really really unusual) and 50mph wind gusts most of the unsheltered leaves have blown away ... those that remain are colorful.  but the browness of it is starting to sink in....

I get that with blackbirds and thrushes here, with the soft fruit- peck and run merchants.

The crows are more of a nuisance with the beans and peas, and the pigeons shred the brassicas and strip the elderberries!

I don't mind a little sharing, but!!!!
