This morning I pulled up all but 1 of the remaining heads of cabbage to make room for the next crop.
The broccoli I planted in the spring did so well, I decided to try it again this fall. Up until this year I had never been too successful with broccoli. In years past I had just plopped the seeds into the ground. But this year I used grow lights and they made all the difference in the world. I think by starting the broccoli indoors it helped to produce hardier plants as well as allow the broccoli starts to get nice and fat so they could defend themselves a little better from the slugs.
I started these broccoli plants about a month or so ago, and in my opinion, I think they look just like the ones you’d find at a nursery. With any luck, we should be harvesting our fall crop of broccoli in about 55 days.
Now, if I can just keep the slugs away everything will be alright. Only time will tell.
How are YOU keeping slugs out of your garden?
Have you tried the old beer in a pie tin trick? Does it really work?
I usually just pick them off and toss them in a bucket of salt. Maybe I need to try something new.
