I have the feeling my fall veggie garden
will be depraved of brassicas again this year.
So I'm trying to grow small cabbages, turnips, radishes for this fall. They slowly disappear, eaten away by very small bits every day.
I know slugs like those way better than lettuce for example, my lettuces are spotless.
I told myself "why not set up beer traps" in the hope of saving some crops. So I went on tonight with beer in my garden and I found the slug situation is somewhat strange.
Basically there are so many slugs that everything can easily disappear in one night without any problem, however it seems that they only nibble leaves here and there: they are clearly after something else.
It makes me think
that slugs might be ok in the garden as long as get what they want. (a little bit like aphids are not a problem for me because the nearby black locust
keeps them busy and away from the garden) .
Suddenly I have some hope if only I knew what those slugs want. Anyone knows?
