It's May, for heaven's sake. Where did April go? Well, I have been keeping busy with lots of things, including getting two staples in my head from a cut I sustained inside my car! Stupid, don't even ask.
The herbs are in their pots as of yesterday and we got a lovely rain right after I finished planting them. I have photographic evidence now of what the basil looked like before the slugs got to it. I'm planning on trying some of the non-insecticide options like beer and coffee grounds. Let me know if you have any other methods that work.
