I love strawberries. Eating too many can give me canker sores, but ah well. I can eat some without any fear.
There are some wild strawberry vines in my backyard, right by my herb
patch. Each year I eagerly watch the flowers grow on them, become pollinated, slowly turn into green strawberries, and eventually ripen. Store bought strawberries just don't compare to those eaten fresh off the vine.
So you can imagine my dismay when I discovered that slugs have gotten to the first ripe strawberries before me. I didn't even know that slugs will eat strawberries! The nerve of them. First my basil plant, and now my strawberries. They've never attacked my part of the garden before.
I had been happy to coexist with slugs before now, but I think I just might start waging war on them.
By the way, Father's Day is not forgotten. I'll share a post about that later. :)
