'Finger blight' is a humorous term used by gardeners to refer to petty theft of vegetables, flowers, or entire plants. It is most often used to refer to 'preemptive gleaning' of fruits and vegetables.

You will sometimes hear it referred to as the 'five finger blight' by those who do not understand the value of subtlety when making an in-joke.
