Saving the gooseberries!

Tonight was dedicated to the sustainable protection of the gooseberry bush.

I fixed one layer of netting so that the bush fit comfortably underneath and then set up my latest organic defence mechanism: humming lines!

We'll see if it works.

On the subject of pests, I will also have to do another round of nematodes as slugs are thriving in places (not very much at ease about artificially introducing a parasite in plenty, though). And have a thorough check of the shed, just in case the rat - which I have not seen outside for a while - had the unfortunate idea of taking residence inside.
