When you want to grow your own food it’s essential that the young plants don’t fall into the wrong hands before harvest. Or mouths. This is not the case with killer slugs (Arion Lusitanicus). They will go berserk on your plants so you have got to do something if they are roaming your area. I
It looks like something is attacking my leeks. All of them are in a pretty bad shape and I don’t think they will make it to the harvest. If you have any idea what this could be, please leave a comment.

Killer slugs can be really hard on the vegetables. I’ve read that it’s not slug problem – it’s a duck problem. If there are too few ducks in the area the slug population will explode. It sure did in this area, and I’m not going to put out ducks, since the plot is located in
Now what does a pond have to do with growing food? Well there’s no direct connection unless you grow rice, but that’s not what’s on my mind 😉 We’ve got a slug problem here – a big one. Killer slugs, Spanish slugs, Arion Lusitanicus or whatever you call them, they’re all over the place. I’m
