Mollusc Might

I weeded the raised veg beds today and found that the molluscs have eaten every single lettuce and most of the carrot seedlings.

Chickweed they ignore, as they do speedwell and jack-by-the-hedge and every other weed – just went straight for the good stuff…



Much as I hate to relent I feel the purchase of several buckets of slug pellets coming on.

  1. Even slug pellets can get washed away ! The Iron based pellets seem to last longer, and maybe less toic for your soil. Adam
