Mums and Slugs???
For the past several weeks the red mums have been looking a bit rough but we attributed this to more sun on that side of the stoop. Definitely not that - about four or five slugs were lined up encircling my red mums ready to strike. It was Sunday and I figured St. Francis would not be thrilled if I viciously threw salt on those slugs so I let them be - well actually it was 2.5 degrees outside and I really don't expect the mums to make it much longer so here's to nature.
I have a really creepy slug story from my days in Guatemala involving the trail slugs leave and my shoes but you'll have to read my book to find out the details...
