First night shifts

I have been for the first time after work yesterday, and then again today - very frustrating but at the same time it has been absolutely vital as slugs and snails (big, beautiful ones) seem to have found their way to my seedlings and have already cleared out four crops completely and another two or three partially: I had to plant out my cardoons in the hope that they will be safer in the ground than they were in the protected environment of the propagator!

Tonight I have sprinkled ferric phosphate all over the place and will keep my finger crossed and keep checking (tonight I squashed three of the nasty visitors). Sigh.
