i had no idea that zinnias and marigolds were slug bait.

Thursday, 30 Apr 09 Sunny 21°C / 70°F

good grief, the slugs shredded my poor little zinnias and especially the marigolds. they killed more than not. i’m glad i didn’t try to direct-seed them, because the wouldn’t have had a snowball’s chance!
