One thing there has been plenty of at Pomps Patch is wildlife. Every time we pull up some old carpet we find frogs/toads/slow worms, and there have been some beautiful caterpillars too. Caterpillars destroy fruit and veg so technically are the enemy, but when they're this beautiful I can't bring myself to kill them. These guys were moved to the safety of the park, away from my crops!! With all this damp weather I have never seen so many snails and slugs, these slimy buggers are EVERYWHERE. I have touched too many with my bear hands than I'd care to think about lately.
