It's been beautiful weather lately, and the garden has been calling. So, each day after work, Dozer and I work in the garden until it's time for me to go in and start dinner. I've transplanted lettuce, broccoli, and cabbage. They're so cute! But then, the slugs thought so too. I didn't want to use snail and slug bait because I'd feel awful if Dozer got some without me knowing. So I tried ....... beer. Yes, beer.
I had a bunch of plastic bottles waiting to be recycled, so I cut them up, saving the tops and bottoms to bury in the garden. I put them in strategic locations, put about 3/8" of beer in each one, and waited overnight.
That next morning, I picked out 30 slugs from my 6 little beer traps. Wahoo! Today I added more traps, and loaded them up! Beer. It's my new best friend! Who knew it was good for more than just bread??
