Jo I need more info on the bread, does it attract them or kill them?
20 & still they come!
Kate, it attracts them really quickly. So you can either collect & drop into salty water, no thanks, or stamp on them. Ok the really big orange ones I judder at doing a stamp, so have been know to chuck well over into the adjacent open ground where lots of food for them! Anything which harmlessly gets rid of the slimey so n sos is great for me.
Signs of hog having been around too, so that's good. J.
Cheers Jo I will pass this on to my sister.
I am in anti-fly heaven the fly screen has arrived and is up-Cody has not yet worked out how to walk through it yet and stands there looking quizzical
Dry at Wimbledon-no roof
Im going to try the bread thanks for that tip
Jenny -is all the decorating done?- this seems a long drawn out saga.
Yayyyy! Marray! Who'd heard of him before this week? And Nielsen, of course,
1936 was mentioned ;- )
I just noticed and talk of omens and stuff-we have a lot of that sort of talk to come.
They'll be reading the entrails live on air before long.
Don't say that I get queasy at the thought of squishy slugs
I hope Blue Boy will do the necessary slug squishing. Heard today that a hedgehog was seen going across next door's patio last night so it seems as if Basil will not be available to help - well not in my garden :- (
I found 3 slugs and a snail on the lupins and lilies earlier-have thrown them in your direction
It must've been one of yours I stood on outside the greenhouse. Glad to be of help.
Geoff decorating not finished ceilings next but I must say our sitting room is looking so fresh and no disasters yet.. I hope your not flooded down there I suppose thats the one plus of living at 1100ft. My lupins are flattened this morn with the rain but if thats all Ive to complain about Im lucky I say.
No floods here -must be the sandy soil and can always push any water out to sea with my gigantic broom.
We have an injured rook in the garden with a damaged wing-what should we do?
Flo you owe me a slug then but no rush-don't use the pigeon
Well are we all geared up for the big game?-I can see me pacing about like an expectant father.
Don't wish to whinge and only post here because it's where most of the peeps I know from the old boards hang out, BUT (there's always a but) .....does anyone else notice the lack of (not always) of a simple thank you when you've taken trouble to help someone on this forum.
Yes I have as well- I find it irritating that some do not pop back to say thanks -how difficult is and bearing in mind a response e-mail is sent out
Rude and somewhat ignorant is my take on it-I have said before if I say thanks not only is it appreciated but also makes me feel I can ask a question again
It is not everybody as you say David but it does seem to happen a lot
Thanks, Geoff....praps I'm not turning into a Victor Meldrew then!
I am -and proud of it
First blood to the plucky Brit
This is getting tense
