We’ve been having a lot of fun growing radishes for the first time this year.
After the first hard rain we noticed someone or something had been snacking on our radishes while they were still in the dirt.
We determined the culprit or culprits were big ugly slugs because I caught one in the act of decimating a radish. (Unfortunately he was camera shy so I didn’t get his mug shot.)
I had heard or read that if you put a copper wire around a crop that slugs like they won’t cross the wire because it gives them a shock.
We certainly hope that’s right because we planted another square of 256 radishes and we prefer them without gnaw marks.
We’ll let you know if the experiment works.
Have you done anything shocking lately?
