So it was off to the plot to catch up not having visited for over a week due to the weather.
First thoughts on arrival were, the plants have grown but then so have the weeds and the wet weather had produced an abundance of slugs and snails, slugs I deal with by organic pellets, snails are a problem the birds don`t seem to eat them and we have no hedgehogs having a enclosed walled site.
So I walked round the plot picking up as I went and gathered about thirty placed them in a lidded bucket and deposited them on the Langney levels on the way home. We do have hedgehogs there.

|There were several snails eating my few ripe strawberries that I had to pick off. That is really unacceptable|
|I thought the pot marigolds were bright until I saw these calendula interspersed with california poppies on my neighbours plot|
