I try to work in the garden every day, even if it’s just 5 minutes. My 2 year old daughter ‘helps’ me.
Between the midges warfare, the chickens scratching/pecking, the deer’s immense appetite and my daughter’s technique of watering the flowers by pulling them up and shove them into the watering can, it’s crazy I even have a garden. But nemesis number 1 is…. the SLUG!
After coming out to see the 35 sunflower seedlings we had tended to decimated in one night I went inside and made my first slug trophy. Purely out of frustration.
To my surprise they have been very popular – everyone has their own slug story!
