Deer and onions
It's a good thing deer have tiny hoofs. A pair of them have tiptoed across my onions and the yet-to-show carrots. I'm expecting slugs to decimate the carrot crop but not deer. I finally heard the cuckoo today, though everyone else in the family has been hearing him for days. None of 'our' swallows yet though. Hope they haven't perished on the way. They were here in April last year.
