Ok. Short grumpy story made even shorter. Slugs ate my entire crop of cauliflower. All of 30 plants neatly protected near the greenhouse wall were devoured, save two. Leaves were stripped down to the stems, along with a few neighbouring spinach plants.


Now I don't harbour any ill thoughts against God's slimier creatures but if the slugs are reading, my message to you is I'm seriously looking into organic pest-control methods. An organic pair of slug-squishing wellington boots is one.

And for a positive end, the two rescued cauliflower plants nestled deep under leaves were made pest-prood with non-toxic slug pellets. I checked on them daily until the white florets were robust, blossoming and ready to be cut down.

Taken into intensive care, said cauliflowers were made into vegetable pies and stews. I guess I'm as much a predator as the herbivorous pests... At least we all said bismillah (in God's name) before we ate.

I'm ok now. -exhale-

Peace & eco-jihad,
Zaufishan.

  1. Awww, the darned slugs!!! I'm glad you were able to save some of 'em. So, did Eco-Mum make aloo gobi?? Anyways, they look beautiful. I've actually never seen the cauliflower plant up close like this (if 2D photos count, lol). 

    We have a slug problem as well, they eat up the leaves of our potted plants that sit out front of our house, as well as the ones in the garden proper. Blech! We put this stuff on them, that they are attracted to but then they kinda get dissolved, etc. Kinda gross, but I hope that's not going against the decency act, etc. 

    Anyways, as always, I love me some garden updates!
