You may remember a post from a while back titled "Guess" (From June 22nd ) It had to do with the forgotten garden. I was feeling overwhelmed with going full time and Nic having cancer. I had to let go of something. Well as much as I wanted to let go of laundry or cleaning, I knew it had to be the garden. Thanks to all the rain, not only did I not ever have to water, but my weeds started thriving. So I decided last week that I needed to see if my green beans were ready, but how? So, I got a good start on it, then picked my beans. While picking my beans I noticed the invasion of snails. Being that it was about 7:00 AM, they were out in full force. So after picking my beans, I started picking snails. At first I was holding them into my hand, then they started over flowing, so I went & placed them all in my wheelbarrow- thinking the sun would get to them before they could slime their way out. I got tired of making trips to the wheelbarrow, not that it was that far away, but really their was a crap load of snails. So I started plunking them at the fence. I have a chain link fence, on my back neighbors side, she has built up a little fountain of sorts & used cinder block to lint the fence. I splattered about 10 snails against that before deciding I had hopefully cut their numbers by 50%. As I am stepping out of the garden & was going towards the hose to wash my hands and feet, I noticed I had 3 little slugs on my feet. BLAST VILE THINGS. GROSS. It wasn't bad enough they ate some of my green beans & ruined a few of my potato plant, they has to slime their way onto my feet & legs. *shutter*
No matter how much I scrubbed, I could still feel the slime.
My tomato's are coming along nicely.
Cassidy told me to buy this kind, Sun Sweet. They stay this orange color & she & Stockton Love them! I can't get up the nerve to just pop one in my mouth and try it...
