Revenge....???I know these photos are not very appetizing, but I thought about sharing them because this may be something you don't see often. ;)
Last weekend I stayed at my parents' house and I need to do so this weekend again. It’s for the autumn festival in my hometown. The town consists of 3 (or 4?) small sections, and every year one family from each section has to join the festival committee to take care of the festival. It is our family’s turn this year, so my parents and I have been involved in the preparation. (I’ll be posting about it on my another blog, if you are interested.)
Anyway, these are the pics I took at my parents' house last weekend. This is how a couple of wild boars did a revenge in my dad’s veggie garden. As I wrote before, dad has a license to trap certain wild animals in a certain time of the year, thus my family eats wild boar meat once in a while this way.
Now, in my hometown, wild boars often cause damages to veggie gardens and orchards every year. That's why dad decided to get a license to catch them in the first place. But this autumn, they dug up my dad’s veggie garden three times already while the neighbors' veggie gardens were untouched. So my mom and I are joking that it must be the revenge of the family members of the boar that dad caught last year. Dad insists that they are attracted by the special fertilizer he uses but the neighbors don’t. He says that the fertilizer has a distinctive smell from fermentation and the wild boars are attracted by it. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but the fact is that his young daikon (top photo) and Chinese cabbage (left) are suffering seriously.
