Two weekends back my mom and I bought herb plants for the garden. Orange thyme, mint, origanum, chives and parsley.
Yesterday we went out to water them. The parsley is gone! Just a dozen little green stalks nibbled down to pot level.
Yesterday morning there were roe deer playing in the front garden at dawn. We have deep suspicions the parsley thief is one of them.
All in all I can live with that - anyone can have parsley, but not everyone gets to watch deer dance outside their bedroom window.
There are great photos of roe deer here.
