Slugs are the enemy!

The b*srtards! They have eaten every single courgette plant..all that is left is a stick and a layer of slime! They are now starting on the beans! Ian and I are devising a multi-layered slug defense for France consisting of a copper barrier, nematodes and failing that dynamite! Well if we can't have the veg then the bloody slugs aren't going to get it either!

We are using the nematodes this year, seems to help so far. Have even resorted to the pellets, mainly in the polytunnel, as there are no thrushes here this year. Last year we lost most things, to snails and the weather, so determined not to this year, it is so demoralising.
