Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Still on slugs and snails, and after yesterdays rain (thunderstorm that rolled around for over 4 hours!), they're more abundant than ever.

My pond appreciated the rain, it's starting to look decidedly unhappy for the first time ever... I suspect there is just too much in it at the moment and come the first frost, there is some heavy duty weed gathering to do (I wait til the frost because then all the watersnails go to the bottom). The rain has brought my Japanese anenome into flower, they're so white they glow in the dark evenings.... the moths like that. I have some major clearing to do this autumn.... I may even go out and buy some more bulbs, even though they don't seem to do too well in my garden. I've got another patch I can clear for them though. Maybe that will work...
