Tufty ate my winter salad
The winter salad leaves I've been growing in my balcony boxes have held up surprisingly well, despite being covered in drifts of snow for the best part of a fortnight.
It's not the cold that's got them, it's a daredevil squirrel who I caught chomping his/her way through the crop just before Christmas. I say daredevil, as I live in a block of flats, on one of the higher floors. When I chased the little bugger off the balcony, mid-munch, s/he simply shinned down to the ground and scampered off.
