Rat Update

Well it seems that several plots are now finding gnawed tubers as they dig up their potato crop. A couple of rats have actually been disturbed by the strenous harvest activity and have taken flight into the neighbouring field.
My dog disturbed one at the top of my plot and went in swift persuit of it as sought refuge in said field. The rat however was able to dive through the gaps in my pallet fence which left my dog thwarted and agitated as the rat made its escape.
Even the old timers, some of whom have had their plots for over 50yrs have never encoutered a problem like this.
I think it is time to call in the rat busters and have them evicted.
