The latter half of the summer did bring out my sluggy foe and damage was done to many of my young seedlings. A combination of events has made this a very busy year and I am culpable of neglecting my plot. So maybe I deserve this!
However last week I took my spuds out of the ground and was very pleased indeed to find that I had to throw away only one potato because of the dreaded slug munch!
On reflection I am wondering if my decision not to cover my plot over the winter actually worked to my advantage in my war on slug terror. Having the ground exposed to the frosts and hungry birds may have made the difference, at least for the first half if the season. It is a strategy I will try again over this coming winter. Weeds be damned!
