I use a salt cannon to dehydrate and dessicate the nymphs, and guard against any snail or slug based attacks.

My hill.

Side note: why isn't there a major salt based supervillain? So many "are you just feeling salty about this, Count Saline?" terrible puns on offer.

I start a salt and vinegar crisp factory and turn all your salt into delicious crisp products, leaving you defenceless. I then use the assault cannon that you probably intended to order when you got a salt cannon, and conquer the hill with actual artillery.

My hill!

After long silence, I encounter an abandoned hill on my travels, adorned with an unexpected crisp factory and assault cannon. In the absence of any occupants, I move in myself, bring the crisp factory back into production, and ready the cannon for any necessary defence.

I encounter an abandoned crisp factory, defended by rusted cannon, a relic of an age long past. I sell it to the National Trust, who defend it with trained guard hedgehogs and make me the site manager.

I earn the trust of the national trust's regional manager. I persuade them to allow me access to the premesis on the hill so that I can run a sponsored bake sale.

My nefarious intentions become clear when the bake sale opens. Instead of hungry punters coming up the hill, it is a pack of hedgehog hating poodles. They scare away the unprepared guard hedgehogs.

Along with my new pack of guard poodles, I consolidate my defenses with the cakes, which it turns out are not edible cakes at all, but motion detecting automated turrets which are programmed to destroy any intruders.
