Hi,

My cabbages are being eaten by slugs but I am loath to put down slugtox - worried for the birds and also my one-year-old!
I'd love to hear any suggestions for alternatives

Thanks in advance

Warning! This posting is only suitable for the stronger stomached gardener.
When my son was a toddler, spending long summer afternoons helping mummy in the garden, someone used to eat something else, but it wasn't the lettuces, slug pellets, or the toddler that got eaten. Shocked Despite his culinary excentricities he has lived to tell the tale; but he hates the tale being told, so I relish the opertunity to do so for him. I regularly make the most of the subject when he introduces new friends - especially girlfriends. I particularly like imitating the strange noises he used to make which alerted me when the greedy little so and so had found another nutrishisquishiulouse victim in the garden. Mr. Green

When I was a young fella the next door neighbour aged around five used to dig up earthworms and eat them. We gave him the highly imaginitive nickname............ Worms Laughing Laughing
