the tidy gardener

totally agree with you hester. I was thinking the same thing.even
getting rid of the whole of my veg plot and putting a lawn down!
but then I looked at my new neighbours with their new plot,excitedly coming home from work every night and checking their (now netted)veg.
it is frustrating and I share your pain, I had most of my plants that id grown from seed munched overnight by snails and slugs, even the sparrows(thinking they were my friends I feed them enough)have been picking at my peas and tomatoes!
when I watch monty don putting in tonnes of new veg plants,i think,how much did that cost?!!
I do think the wet warm(ha)winter has really done it this year for the slugs and snails.and pigeons grhhh.... if I had a gun!
don't give up tho! could you go and have a look at a garden centre and see if anyones selling anything of cheap?
I got a tray of Brussels for a £1 and some geraniums from the market, I took out my poor cosmos and replaced them and felt so much better.
get some cheap beer for slug traps watch them tumble in and have a more expensive beer yourself!
