Until this week I havnt really taken much notice of the slugs. The odd black one has caught my eye as I marched around the garden but this week they have started on my pots.
They have munched their way through petunias and geraniums at the rate of knots.
Killing things is a knotty problem for me. I just can't do it and live with myself.
I protect roses by using a systemic spray right at the beginning of the season.
Crustacians don't come into that category though.
What to do with them!
First catch them!
Then I am mean. I throw them over the hedge. Not onto another garden. Onto the road which is quite busy in August.
That's called copping out. I do know that but if it's life that's sacred what about the life of the plants? They are being eaten alive so I'm just sacrificing one life for another! This is a small selection of this mornings crop!
Sorry. I know it's disgusting'.
