Over the past week or so we’ve noticed a number of the seedlings in the porch, especially the sunflowers, have been nibbled.
The other afternoon we found the culprit, a wood mouse.
We have a lot of wood mice around us, but they generally only come in the porch or even get in the house in the winter. This one probably couldn’t resist the trays of plants, although it did seem to only bite through the stalks but not actually eat any of them.
In the garden, a mouse or something similar has been taking bites out of the radishes and potatoes.
With the weasel and the number of cats that visit, the mouse is probably safer in the porch.
