Much excitement at the Hanged Man. Jeb is convinced that his cabbages are being eaten by a mysterious beastie – to eat cabbages that fast, he reckons, would require a creature the size of a puma – possibly with glowing eyes and a bad attitude.
I did have a look at said cabbage patch on the way home. I’d guess his problem may have more to do with lots of small green beasties, all eating as fast as they can before the summer – or what’s left of it – runs out.
The only thing I have not been able to determine about that cabbage patch, is whether Jeb was born in it. Though the evidence suggests he was. Or, at least, believes that he was.
