Just getting started and had several garden thefts
I was made redundant a while ago and made the most of the time starting the garden after years of neglect due to job and kids. I got a local man to clear the worst and dig over from there on i dug and built raised beds weeded added fertiliser and manure and planted, seeded a lawn built raised beds and generally spent a year working my backside off.
With no sign of a job i purchased a large bulk of slightly used plastic terracotta look pots from Ebay several hundred in fact as well as loads of little pots and seed trays it was one lot and a real bargain.My intention was to plant up some of 12 inch pots with herbs etc and sell at car boot sales to help pay for my sons college next year.
A week after the pots arrived i thought a pile of around fourty 12 inch pots had vanished My husband said i was imagining it. I got quite angry this weekend with my husband as it looks like around 150 to 200 pots have disapeared not just the ones i bought to sell with herbs but pots i got last year or my birthday some of these are 22 inch pots last year i had about fifteen 22 + inch pots with toms and cues in plus got some more from ebay now i only have 6 left .
I think the thief is returning taking a stack or two of pots at a time.
Its bad enough somebody stole my wheelbarrow last year along with rake two forks and a spade.
I think it may be the man I paid to dig over my garden, that stole the pots and tools but cant prove pots may be able to prove tools as have seen fork and wheelbarrow somewhere else he works.
I think if it is him he may well sell at a car boot sale as i know he goes to them.
