This year I’m doing a lot of veranda growing. Which may sound crazy when you know I have an entire hectare of growing space in front of the house. But I’m feeling very defeated. By these little buggers:


The slugs. Oh god, the slugs. They have eaten my pumpkin plants. They have eaten many leaves off my broad beans. They have eaten my broccoli. They have eaten stems on my onions. They have eaten almost everything I’ve tried to start from seed down there.

I have a longer term solution in the works, but for this season we will be mostly harvesting from the veranda. Bonus: it’s really close to the kitchen.
