Slug Fest 2009
My vegetable garden is coming along. I have several tomato buds; my cilantro and parsley are quadrupling in size; my shaky basil is regaining strength. All is well. Almost.
Enter the slug.
Yes, I my garden has slugs. So I filled a couple of caps full of beer and placed them around the garden. Then it rained and washed my beer away. And the next day I had even more slugs.
Today, I revisited the garden not less than eight times. And found slugs EVERY. TIME. My solution? Throw them as hard as I can across the yard and scream, “SEE YOU IN FOUR YEARS.”
And tonight I placed bowls, not small caps, of beer around the garden. If I see even ONE slug tomorrow, it will be the end of all this nicey-nice. I will resort to chemicals. *Sigh*
But all I can think in this struggle is, I must be growing a good garden if it’s attracting slugs, no?
