While we were eating dinner on our porch one evening, an envoy of slugs were dispatched in an attempt to open peace negotiations. I guess they didn’t take too kindly to the tactics I used to protect my garden from them (the soapy bucket method).
I think these slugs are pretty darn smart. After taking pictures of them, I couldn’t bring myself to do away with them. I did stop short of naming them, though. I can show some self-restraint.
So, I guess you could say there currently is a suspension of hostilities. They did make one tactical error, though. They sent very plump slugs, which sort of rubs in the fact that they are getting fat off my crops.
