This article here is not strictly slug related but will be of interest to any small holders who grow their own potatoes. Essentially the non professional gardener is being blamed for the spread of blight on commercial crops.
So this weekend I harvested my main crop of potatoes. The variety I had planted were King Edward.
I have to say they were not really fit for a king. Slugs you ask? Well, no actually. In fact I did not lose a single potato to slug damage. The slug control must be working. The real issue was with the yield. It was small. In all senses of the word. Small potatoes and a small quantity. Very small.
If it's not one thing its the other!
Why can't I have the best of all worlds!
I have an allotment and love growing my own food, admittedly with varying degrees of success. One of the biggest problems I face is the slug. This somewhat light hearted blog will chronicle my war against this insidious pest.
