Whisper it, but we seem to have lost little yet to the slugs and snails which were such a problem in my garden last year...
It's not that there aren't any of the critturs around. We planted a couple of slug pubs in the garden last weekend and they seem to have been satifyingly busy over the week, with tens of bodies to throw into the compost heap this morning. The one next to the scabious clump (which has been well chewed by something) was the most crowded.
I spotted a few chewed leaves on the black elder and the hairy mint this morning (and aphid foam on the black peppermint) but lettuce on the allotment, and lobelia planted out last week seem (fingers crossed) untouched. However, half the early Nantes carrots seeds planted in March either didn't come up or met an early lunch date - I'm just not aware of having lost carrots to slugs before.
Even if the recent cold snap has temporarily slowed them down, I'm staying watchful.
