It's a nasty job.... but one that needs done.... Hunting for slugs. I have this beautiful beautiful back yard, and the slugs are demolishing it, one leaf at a time, as they nibble away. So yesterday, with bucket of salt in hand, I went on search for the elusive slug. It wasn't hard. They were everywhere--crossing the lawn, napping on stems, eating leaves. All my gardens are lined with large rocks and wood rounds and you can always score if you tip those over. And piles of eggs! Yea, I'm not going to have any slugs next year.... I told Mike that when we get around to cutting all our plants down this Fall, he can do the snipping, and I'll go behind him with the vinegar and squirt the buggers. Have no mercy! Take no prisoners!

Later.... Nancy
