slugs and other pests

seem to have the slug problem a bit more under control at last.  The secret is threefold - relentless slugging for a week at dusk (often in the rain) netting about 1000 of the little buggers, wood ash round the newly planted out seedlings and then organic slug pellets.

    1. thanks Roselle - you'll see I kind of lost heart for the blog after such slug devastation but we're still here and still trying to grow stuff and husband animals and fowl :)
