You will have to set up a 'Bob' trap, but make sure it's humane.  Smile  I used to have the same problem, a 'Simon' but he left home and got married, he's someone else's problem now! Big Grin

Is it anything like a Gin trap, that presumably is baited with gin? Wink

The shoplifters here have 4 legs  although there is an old bird that nicks the raspberries if she thinks you're not looking. Poor old girl, she's a bit past her prime and she'd never make a living on the streets, so I pretend I haven't seen her.

The shopkeeper has been busy restocking the alcohol section. I don’t know why he bothers no one buys it, he ends up giving it away!

I noticed a basket of soil in the corner earlier today and he gestured I should have a furtle and low and behold there were a few spuds tucked in there, they went very nicely with a veggie burger and some peas shoots.

There are a few sporadic fruit deliveries some wild strawberries and golden raspberries, apparently there’s a large load of black currants on order but they are stuck at customs presently.

The shop has a new bakery section mainly selling sourdough and Welshcakes at the moment, I’ve put my order in for Sunday he’s a late riser the baker by all accounts.

I’ve heard they plan on opening a cheese counter soon specialising in local mozzarella, I’m not sure there’s a lot of call for it round here. We are mainly Welsh not Italian, I guess he must know his market.

Gotta make an early start today, thankfully the shop is open sorting the papers. There’s some lovely tomato sized beets on the shelf today. If I’m quick I might be able to make some boiled beet sandwiches for lunch, lush with a little mayo.

Just back from some window shopping and, don't tell on me, but I shoplifted some raspberries while he wasn't looking.  Blush  Don't think anyone will notice as there were plenty more. 
There'll be a delivery of courgettes in time for dinner and maybe some mangetout? 
I must ask the shopkeeper when he's expecting the baby beets in store. Shouldn't be long now. Smile

The little shop is so full of lettuce you can hardly find anything else. Shop keeper over orders every year, but this year has excelled himself! There is a small corner of the shop that is starting to fill very quickly with courgettes, but they are flying out the door.....at the moment. A good selection of kale, carrots & spring onions are also available. If you can fight your way past the lettuce.

Courgettes were on BOGOF offer today but I was diddled - came home with 7 courgettes, not 8. I'm going back tomorrow to ask for the missing one. 
These shop keepers! You have to keep an eye on them. 
Don't feel so guilty about eating the raspberries this morning now. Wink

I’m a bit concerned, there’s a bit too much furtiling going on in the spud bed behind the runner beans, It’s very off putting. There’s a few new empty shelves, I’m not sure what is coming but, I’m excited.
