Pictured above is a year’s savings of egg shells, ready to repel those slimy slugs.
In truth, I don’t know how effective they are. Slugs dislike travelling over jagged edges – apparently. So I put some around my four remaining courgette seedlings (out of sixteen sown – sad face) and will check on their progress over the next few mornings.
So far the little feckers have nibbled all of my cabbages, finishing off two plants. One whole potato plant was devoured, while a number of my courgette seedings were gobbled up.
I had this crazy idea that maybe I would refrain from killing any slugs this year, but not any more, the gloves are off, the slugs are toast!
I received the following email recently. It’s annoying because my ISP has been blocking dodgy emails to such an extent that some legitimate emails are not making their way through to me! Yet, this juicy morsel managed to land on my virtual hall carpet. I’m kind of glad it did, it’s a good laugh and a bit fruity…
