I’ve been relaxing at home since I got back from my Maine road trip. My garden has gotten huge. The tomato plants have completely taken over. Little babies are starting to grow. Maybe in the next couple of weeks I actually have some to eat.
A big chunk of my garden got eaten by nasty slugs while I was gone. Thankfully, they didn’t make it to the tomatoes. They did invite all their friends over for a hydrangea leaf eating party. My beautiful blue flowers are really looking sad. I tried to rid myself of the infestation by using the old school beer removal method.
The idea is to put plastic cups into the ground filled with stinky cheap beer. You want the cups low enough so the little buggers will crawl in, drown, and die. We were pretty successful. I think we captured 6-8. Slugs are so disgusting. We found one laying on the sidewalk still alive. The scary thing freaked everyone out. I heard lots of screams from my living room window Sunday morning. Greg felt bad for the ugly creature and found it a new home far away from my garden. Hopefully my plants will grow back and be happy now!
