planted for the Veg garden
« on: April 02, 2009, 05:53:39 pm »
okay sown another row of carrots , a row of beetroot, and as i am unsure of the likely hood of the carrots doing anything i have sown some in a tub too.

Put two tomatoes seeds in to the irrigation system.
Planted out some peas will sow some more in the greenhouse.
Put down some organic bran slug repentant stuff (outside)as i try to only uses the slug pelets in the greenhouse untill they are finished up (i think it a waste to thought them out when the container has stuff left in)

Linz, you could gather the slugs and snails up for Annie's ducks in an old container with a well fitted lid - they think it's an absolute delicacy! I'm a regular gatherer in some infested gardens (including my own veg plot). Never spent a penny on slug repellents and the like since we had the birds :&>

don't really have much of a prob (at the moment, but that me got the cures now) in jan i had lots in the greenhouse not sure where they came from went too as only saw the trails. But once all the bran/pellet have long gone i'll store the slugs/snails up for the duckies

And when you bring them round you can help me decide where to plant everything, and whether my seedlings are ready.  Any time next week - just holler!  You an come for lunch too.  Sandy too if she wants a break from that  busy little B & B
