Just a note to say that 1. I have a few blossoms on an apple tree, 2. I have an odd out of season rose and 3. My fig tree produced two sets of edible figs, the second set from this years buds. (figs are flower buds)
I was thinking of this post a few weeks ago as there is a pheasant that seems to tolerate me being within a few yards and then a bit closer whilst it was eating my greens and apples. Then I started to throw a few damaged apples to a regular place and it seemed to be a bit more comfortable.
Well I'd been away for a few days and on returning the pheasant popped out of the hedge and came up to within a few feet, clearly expecting to be fed.
The problem is by encouraging the pheasant I have no kale as it has eaten every single leaf.
