A spare piece of lettuce

The slugs and snails have been nibbling their way through the Sprout plants we’re trying to grow, which obviously isn’t much help! Last night, we spotted a slug on the steps in the garden, which looked like it was wanting a tasty snack. Rather than letting it get as far as nibbling the sprout plants down to nothing, we decided to take out a piece of lettuceĀ that was left over from the evening meal.

I think the leaf was a success – I’ve never seen a slug move so quickly! I don’t know how many slugs and snails were munching through the leaf overnight, but there was nothing left by the morning.
