Expecting turtles to leave lettuce alone, is like expecting treecats to leave celery alone; an impossibility!

Yay for the return of your doodles!
My lettuce was left alone, despite rabbits and groundhogs and the occasional deer, for which I was immensely grateful. It was delicious and furnished us with several weeks' worth of salads.

And yes! Doodles are back! And should stay around for a good long while: I already have a pile of them waiting to be shared, so there won't be any shortage.
