Got home tonight and went to unload my car and realized that my garden had been vandalized during the day or evening.
The pea sticks have been pulled out and strewn across the lawn - the peas are already finished and I have been meaning to take them down, but I had put some pots and a seed tray containing some radishes I had about given up on in between them and they were also strewn across the lawn. The spinach and radishes in the same raised bed have all been pulled up (no sign of them). The Chicken wire cover I put over my strawberries to keep the cats off is lying up against the fence and at least one strawberry plant has been pulled up and there are strawberry leaves all over the lawn. The carrots I was growing in a compost bag on the coal bunker have all been pulled out and the pots that were behind it are spread all over the lawn. Some of the slats from one of my compost bins are also laying on the lawn.
There were only about a dozen carrots, maybe 2 dozen radishes and a dozen spinach plants (which were starting to fade anyway) so the value of damage is very small but it is incredibly annoying.
I have been meaning to build a bigger fence up the back because there is a group of 3 small kids who keep climbing over (I suspect it was them or their ringleader that has done the damage, although I haven't seen them for a while and couldn't prove anything). A bigger fence might stop them for a while but it's impossible to make the garden secure, for part of one side my boundary is a retaining wall about 2m high in places, lower in others, so people can jump down into the garden quite easily, and I doubt if I would be allowed to put a fence on top of that?
What would you do?
