    Mine picked my Kale clean and nearly eradicated my strawberries-fruit and leaves- the DAY they discovered the garden (its tucked away in a corner that they had previously not noticed)

    I let mine into my vegie garden this week. They're loving the pea plants (eat the leaves, passed on the pea pod I missed). The chard is now but a memory.
