My tomatoes, fruit trees and herbs produced prolifically. As did the birds, possums and fruit rats. I managed to protect some goodies, but the rest............. llllllllll
Even got savaged by some varmints I was rescuing from the netting!!

Yeah, I got birds tasting my tomatoes, but the biggest nuisance are the bloody Harlequin bugs, into the strawberries! I had to put the strawbs into pots.

George found this online: 
 Attract natural enemies. Stink bugs have many natural predators who can be invited to hang around the garden. Wildflowers and herbs will attract parasitic flies and wasps. Predators such as birds, toads, spiders, and praying mantises will make their homes in perennial herb and flower beds and small shrubs near the garden.

I also do companion planting were one plant will attract the bugs more than the plants you want saved.   You could check that out online too   akakakakak
Be kind to dragons for thou are crunchy when roasted and taste good with brie.

George, your photos are not visible in New Zealand. I am pretty sure that something like the GFW is not blocking them, because the rugby season has not started yet.

...mmm. Gardening.  Your veg is sublimely photogenic, George.  I miss the rural route where I once used to dig til my finger nails were shredded (I never got the hang of remembering to put the garden gloves on mmmmmmmmmm) ...
