Jumping to Conclusions
When we started gardening at the community plots, we were told that, over the years, there had been issues of theft and vandalism. With that information in the back of my mind and based on my neighbour’s observations, I took it that we were the target of a poacher. I found out today, that it was indeed a friend who dropped by to look at our garden when we weren’t there. He didn’t meet with a very friendly reception.
I take it back
I apologize to an innocent party who was only trying to have a look at the status of our garden and for my willingness to prematurely jump to conclusions. I should have more faith in mankind. For sure I should check around before I blog. If we had chickens at the farm I could say I had egg on my face. Having cabbage on your face doesn’t really have the same ring to it.
I got it wrong.

Oh well, many (me included) would have jumped to the same assumption. I am sure all injured parties understand.
That makes me feel some better. Thanks Bev.
Your friend should have introduced himself to whoever was nearby and asked which was your plot before he went and looked. Also if he was “helping himself”, not good!
He’s a great young Dad who is really enjoying gardening, our friend is. We will introduce the two of them-our fervent guard and our friend- next time they are both in the garden.
