Ida approached me today to let me know that someone had stolen her ripe strawberries. Surprise, surprise. Its not the first time she has had stuff stolen, someone had taken her compost bin, but this was the first time someone had taken her produce. Normally, people walk by Ida’s plot as it looks messy and haphazard to the eye. I have heard people laughing as they pass by her plot, saying 'oh my rabbit would eat that', simply because they are unfamiliar with what she is growing such as broccoli di raab.
Anyway, two people came to mind immediately, but I advised Ida to notify the Committee even though they would not do anything, it was better to let people know, than keep quiet about it.
When we got home D told me he had been approached by a new plot holders Dad who had come in watering, as the family was away on holiday. He pointed and asked D who these two individuals were, as he had witnessed them trespassing on the neighbours plot and harvesting berries. Those two individuals happened to be the treasurer and the president. Hallelujah, someone else is witnessing and disgusted at this behaviour too. I am not alone.
