It's about making things better, the second time around.
Aaaawwwwwwwww! Don't give up DoOver Dog. Think of it as the circle of life. Slugs need to eat too! But then again, you need to get rid of the slugs. Here is a site that tells you many ways of doing so: http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Garden-Slugs. I like the one about the beer.Here's another garden tip for you: Deer hate marigolds and anything in the narcissus family. They also hate the big hyacinths - they love the little grape hyacinths.Anyway, those plants will come back - they want to live. Your marigolds are really far along aren't they. Mine are still at the cotyledon stage.... :)
I might try the coffee grain idea -- as I always have an abundant supply! The pacifists in the house insist the critters not be harmed; I have to admit I usually choose to put them in the green bin (where I suspect they'll be happy) rather than squish 'em. Thanks for the advice.
