The turkey scores have been settled, without injury! Other than to my wallet. Lucky this vegie patch was not about saving money, as I am now fairly certain that the return on investment will be negative for the balance of this lifetime!
It was rather funny to come home from work on Monday and see the bush turkey on the boundary fence looking down at our construction efforts and wonder 'how in the hell am I meant to get into there!'.
Score is now even, and the new plants are growing well.
