For he last few weeks, things have been ticking along nicely at the allotment. The weather has been a bit hit and miss, but other than that it’s been relatively uneventful.
Last weekend I had a trip away to visit my university pals so had a few days away from the allotment.
Little did I know that my trip away would coincide with the biggest allotment event of the year…
It must’ve been a sell out event judging by the total decimation they left in their wake.
There’s only one pumpkin plant left in the whole of the pumpkin patch, that’s right only one, out of 11 plants including all the courgettes. They must’ve thought it best to leave one as, you know, eating them all would be greedy!
Now, for the slugs that couldn’t make the main event, they attended the fringe festival
They’ve eaten the sunflowers down to stalk stumps. All but 3 as, you know, it’s greedy to eat them all.
(I was too sad to take a photo of the stumps)
All the time I’ve been growing vegetables I’ve prided myself on being an organic gardener, and I’ve not minded the odd leaf being nibbled here and there but today I’ve declared war.
To all slugs and snails-
Be afraid…be very afraid
Wool pellets are coming
