    Lucky you!
    Between them, the local pigeons and collared doves together with the caterpillars have reduced my Nero di Toscana to bare ribs :-( We did have a few pickings this summer but I really hoped to keep them going overwinter for fresh veg. Looks like I’m going to have to resow and replant ….

    For some reason, our local pigeons haven’t yet cottoned onto the fact that they can eat kale leaves (or maybe the Oxford pigeon is just a better-mannered breed?). We did get a cover but aren’t using it at the moment. Should the birds change their mind though, at least I have the peace of mind knowing that I can put some protection on quickly.

    Caterpillars seemed to concentrate on the kohl rabi leaves but only after the edible stalks were more than swollen enough so I seem to have dodged that bullet as well this year (or perhaps the two make good companions?)
