Well the row cover works

If you read yesterdays post you'll know that we added row covers to our garden on Tuesday to keep the birds and slugs from continuing to eat it. Well, we went down to check the garden yesterday morning and low and behold -- it worked! The garden leafy stuff is still intact and I've no doubt will now thrive under these covers until they are large enough that the slugs won't kill them off.

We found something crawling across this left side path though

So we watched him until he got to the edge 

He couldn't get underneath but could clearly smell breakfast, so he began to climb


Until he was standing straight up

and he was off.... had a bit of trouble under the trellis...

...but he continued anyway

Going over the top of the metal at one point

He made it to the top 

We were getting bored of watching so he was put in the blackberry bushes where there is plenty for him to eat. We really just wanted to know that it worked, that he couldn't find a way in. 



  1. Wow, you grow them big out there!

    1. OMG FG! I trust your referring to the snail not the husband LOLOLOLOLOLOLlk Too funny, thanks for cheering up my day. Loves ya.

  2. Glad you found that your fix will work well.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  3. That certainly took some patience, from you two, not the slug. He's probably used to it taking a long time to do something, except perhaps, eating.
