I was just reading the latest newsletter from a greenhouse we stopped by this spring.
Pests and Pestilence
I have one addition to the pest category that is new for us at Wheelbarrel. Three large otters surprised me early one morning coming down through the roses heading for the pond I presume. In fact I don’t know who was the most surprised. Me or them.
We had lost all our fish in the ornamental pond the week before and had the plants all tipped and generally messed with. We had assumed that the raccoons had finally got them. The otter sighting put a different perspective on things though.
I knew we had racoons, but otters in the fish pond? There’s something a prairie boy like me never expected!!
