Seed Swaps

Mmm Dinner from the garden. Cat-safe slug bait?

Rainy 21°C / 70°F

I made dinner using my own tomatoes and my own spring onions. Alas not my garlic -that’s still in the ground, nor my peas, which haven’t yet even germinated, nor for that matter, my beef. But it’s nice to start reaping what I’ve sown:)

I need some cat-safe slug bait. REALLY cat-safe, not that iron phosphate or whatever it is that is sometimes marketed pet-safe but isn’t. The beer-in-a-saucer trick would be a bad idea too…kitten has to taste EVERYTHING she comes across. She’s nutty enough without being drunk on top of it all! Sand might work but I live a fair way from a beach.

It’s raining again. Soon I’ll be able to grow rice here.




I’m planning to use copper impregnated slug circles to keep the slugs off their favorites.

Maybe you could use something like this?
