Jo I need more info on the bread, does it attract them or kill them?

07/07/2012 at 13:17

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.

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

07/07/2012 at 21:44

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 :- (

07/07/2012 at 21:46

I found 3 slugs and a snail on the lupins and lilies earlier-have thrown them in your direction

07/07/2012 at 22:27

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.

08/07/2012 at 13:38

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

08/07/2012 at 13:55

Thanks, Geoff....praps I'm not turning into a Victor Meldrew then! 

08/07/2012 at 15:10

I am -and proud of it

First blood to the plucky Brit

This is getting tense
