Lettuce thieves

I opened the kitchen blinds on Monday morning and what did I see? Lettuce thieves in action! The pot on the left looked like the pot on the right the day before!! (The one in the middle is basil.)

I bought some more seed to plant lettuce randomly throughout the garden where they like to scratch. Hopefully there will be enough for all of us this summer.

I'm not totally naive, I know that chickens can decimate plants in the garden; I just thought that the pots on the patio would be safe since they don't usually wander up there.

I guess not.

Exhibit A:

  1. Yes chickens are very destructive. We don't let ours out of their run for that reason.
