Friends and Foes

Every gardener has friends and foes in their garden.  The friends are the wonderful worms, who work tirelessly to work their way through the soil and irrigate it, and the foes are the slugs and the snails.

It is amazing how much damage these little creatures can do in one night. They are avid feeders during the night turning solid leaves into leaves with many holes, and many gone completely.  They can even manage to bring a gardener to tears early in the morning.  For the organic gardener who does not want to use harsh sprays and pellets and other such products, a more gentle means of getting rid of them has to be used.
