Slugs have been moving through the Savvy Garden like a windstorm, stripping leaves from every plant in its path. It starts with a few innocuous holes dotting the foliage, and within 2 days, the leaves are gone completely. It started with the mint and sage, then progressed to the peas and beans.
I’m hoping to use organic methods to deal with the issue, so I put out some slug bait this weekend, as recommended by the guys at Agway. The goal is for them to eat the food I put out instead of my tasty vegetables and herbs. Cross your fingers that we are near the end of Slug-Gate 2012.
