I have a lovely garden, and lovely raised beds that I'd lovingly weeded and sown with lovely seeds.
I got out there today and found that they'd been totally dug up by foxes
fury doesn't even begin to cover it!
How do I keep them out? If not out of my garden, which I guess is a losing battle, then at least out of my beds to give my veg a fighting chance. When I moved in, the only thing growing in the bed was a massive triffid of a cardoon: I cut it down because it was spiky and took up all the space and was, frankly, rather frightening. But I wonder now if it was a tactical thing.
(I'm also racked with guilt because I put down a load of organic slug pellets before realising we had a pond full of toads and frogs who probably eat the snails. Will a frog die from eating a poisoned snail? I'm doing eggshells, beer traps etc from now on. This is a secondary concern after the foxes, though.)
