Following on from yesterday’s pesky pigeon post. Bearing in mind that kale is in season for just another month (well according to my River Cottage Veg Patch Book anyway), I figured that it would be best to modify the kale netting, rather than re-net it completely.

Not sure how well it will work, since the netting will still sag a bit if a pigeon sits on it.  Worse case, I will remove the taller kale plants next weekend.
