Hello , very little rain in Lincoln have to keep watering , although it is due today 

in the green house the cucumbers are rampant , lots of male flower thou 

just about to start feeding tomatoes in G/H , however have lots of cherry toms in hanging baskets , can get battered by wind 

Whats munching my hosta ?

Hello , definitely snails / slugs

however as an alternative to slug pellets , I use horticultural grit , it is to sharp for the creature to crawl over , I have used it very successfully for my hostas for many years and I let them flower 

best of luck
