Busy Busy

Got the shopping out of the way this morning, then me and Meg played games, made
pen toppers and finally sorted out her greenhouse plants.

We’ve had to buy some slug pellets today, they are sneaking up the legs of Meg’s
greenhouse and having a midnight feast on her new plants…she’s not impressed.
Although perhaps we shouldn’t have bothered…I’ve just read a very interesting
article about slug pellets.

Apparently, they are made of 5% poison and 95% dog food. The poison is easily
washed away by any rain and the remains act as a slug magnet…so you end up with
more slugs than you would have originally had and to add insult to injury you
provide them with a tasty meal. Should the pellets actually work, the slugs
apparently lay their eggs before they die…so yet again you end up with more
slugs than you would have originally done.

Well we’ve put them down anyway…results to follow later…..
