English sparrows!.....(weaver finches)......destroying our sumptuous growth of Swiss chard! We are accustomed to protecting countless berry and cherry growies with bird netting,......and now are having to drag the stuff out again to protect.....Swiss Chard??? Has anyone else witnessed Hitchcockian bands of sparrows terrorizing the township's leafy greens??

It's feral turkeys that rampage my gardens from time to time. They eat the tops off the onions, carrots, chard, and such. Plus every strawberry that's shows the least tinge of pink. They are also expert at plucking the peas right out of the sides of the pods. At least they pay for their pillaging by eating every slug that they can find.

Cardinals will eat my tomatoes as soon as they show red.
straws are for suckers. tiny ads are for attractive people.
