Late last year I sowed some corn right up the back of our property behind the shed, figuring it didn’t need much looking after and would do well on the ground where our pigs had been. I mulched it with the old chicken coop bedding straw.
It did grow fairly well, especially for the minimal (zero?!) effort I put in.
But then last time I checked on it, I found this!
I’m pointing the finger at a possum we’ve seen occasionally, but it could just as easily have been rats. I’ve seen a few in the shed lately. Or even cockatoos.
Oh well, at least the macadamia tree they’re growing under is bearing. The nuts should be ready in the next month or so:
How do you protect your corn from hungry animals?
