Hi everyone, had fun reading all your great tips about slugs etc. I planted a couple of Rhubarb plants on our new allotment last weekend and the birds have really attacked them. Or perhaps it's the slugs? I have used slug pellets before but wanted to keep the allotment as chemical free as possible so any tips gratefully received.
Most of my veggies are starting off well, but we have had loads of rain here. Except Monday, which was the only dry day. Today not bad, so popped to allotment for a while this evening. Had to cover most of my seedlings with nets as the birds are having a feeding frenzy. They first pecked all the tops off our radishes, little blighters!
Looking forward to chatting to you all further. Maybe share a photo or two once things really get going up the allotment and in the garden. (Was also gutted to see Monty & co knocked off TV for the snooker tonight!)
