Unwanted guests for dinner

As I'm in the mood to write: we seem to have unwanted guests on our lot. Instead of eating the wonderful, fresh grass, they seem to prefer the strawberries. We'll have to do something about it in the winter, before they kill them. The fence is due next year.

The few vegetables that are still left outside are having a hard time either. A full-blown cabbage butterfly infestation. I'm picking them off, as I can, but they seem to regrow faster than expected.

I hope to be able to harvest at least some of the Brussels sprouts soon.
