Well since my last post on my grass situation, I have managed to keep the grass down by giving it a twice a week hair cut. I feel so proud and get this because I am doing it so frequently the grass is starting to win the battle aginst the weeds, horrah.
So why do I still hate it, my garden looks well... the grass had got its green back... its under control...
But the slugs have gone out of control.
Now dont get me wrong I am a massive nature lover, but what is their purpose, and why the hell do I have so many of the bastards.
Last night I went outside to have a cigarette, since I never smoke in the house, and my beautiful green grass had turned to black and was moving, albeit slowly. I must have counted at least 70 of the feckers writhing across the lawn all on a mission to destroy any plant that cost me money. Also get this there was about 6 pairs getting it on (which in itself was something I had never seen) and 3 others laying eggs.
I woke up this morning to find about 8 piles of white eggs scattered around the garden, and these were the ones that were easy to spot, as some of the piles were higher then my freshly cut grass!!!
So tonight I will take battle with these squaters in my garden, nothing like a tin can half filled with beer in a hole in the ground, as I cant have my 11 month 3 week old who is starting to walk stepping on them. I wont put up any pictures of the goo that will greet me in the morning. As I said I love nature but when nature starts to own whats mine, thats a different matter.
