I am super excited this week! Some of the lettuce in our little garden got big enough to harvest! Yesterday I was out in Alaskan rain, chopping greens, congratulating myself on my outrageous gardening skills…….then I noticed not one, but THREE of these little bastards sliming around:
Thats right. Slugs.
Yeah. Ew. After I calmed myself down
and screamed some swear words, I did what any other person would do – I made some slug poison. Vinegar, water, salt and vodka in a big mason jar. I plopped those three foul little creatures in and gave it a healthy shake. Don’t mess with my lettuce, bitch.
I’m happy to report that I had one of the best, home-grown-slug-free salads of my life. What can I say…I am turning into a trailer park vegetable growing badass. Cheers! 🙂
