Garden Salad!

Well... not quite yet. We have some overgrown aging carrots that now look like this:


and earlier my folks came by and put in some other vegies. The letuces are coming along nicely


but the cucumbers and zucchini are missing, presumed eaten by snails.

Snail problem?

Put out beer. Works a treat.

Must get Tops to put on a homebrew to protect our garden soon.

We were thinking beer! I don't mind sacrificing a few green nibbles to the gods of the garden, but decimation is a bit uncool.

we also use fizzy drink bottles put over the seedlings. they can act as semi-hothouses too, so it's a double benefit. you can use the bottom with a few holes punched in, or the top, or the whole length with the ends cut off.
