Slug Eggs!

As I mentioned in a post last week, if slugs are an annual problem in your garden, if you look now, you will probably find some clumps of slug eggs hidden under rocks, logs and other garden debris.

We've been working in the veggie garden all day, moving rocks, digging an area for the new cold frames and putting down a new border of logs. As I lifted some of the old, half-decomposed logs away, I noticed large clumps of slug eggs - so of course, I raced down to the house for my camera and snapped a few photos! So, if you notice any of these crystal-ball shaped eggs in your garden as you're working - get rid of them! Even giving your soil a raking will help expose any slug eggs to hungry birds.. Every egg you can eliminate now, will save you much frustration this spring and summer!

Happy Gardening!
