Thieving buggers

So off I troop down to the allotment. There is a big bramble in the middle of the plot that needs some attention of the destructive kind. Today's plan is to deal with said bramble and to finish off the shed base. But no sooner do I arrive at the plot when I find this.
Yes that is, or should I say, was my rhubarb. Or what's left of it anyway.

But I did get some work done. I finished off the shed base.

Made a valiant attempt at dealing with the big bramble. Though the roots are going to have to wait until the digger comes in.

But in the meantime, these past few weeks of rain has done wonders for one crop. That being a good crop of slugs and snails. Meet a couple of large friends.
