Gardening is a constant battle it seems to me with the other forms of life who exist in the air and the soil who are bent on using my newly sprung shoots as fodder. The next couple of weeks are critical in that battle as I prepare to administer 'Nemaslug', my top tip for keeping slugs and snails at bay and since it's a biological control I don't feel too bad about it. However, I can already see in the photo, evidence of crane-fly in the grass and there was some sort of moth setting up shop in the lupins, but short of all-out chemical warfare, I'm not sure what to do about those. Co-existence is not an option so it's back to the gardening manual for now.
