I am completely envious of your lovely allotment Joan ... everything is looking so well-kept and the produce is coming along so well. Shame about the slugs liking your Runner beans so much though. : o ((

thank you..Paul,Libet & TT for your kind comments, Sandra the pond is doing well considering i dug it all out myself & filled it & put the rocks & plants round it lol.
Stroller, it is sooo annoying when you plant something & the next day its gone ..after growing it for ages in the greenhouse..i dont like to use the slug pellets but am considering nematodes.
shirley yours will be the same next year if not may not have as many slugs where you are lol.
cmsue,you are right about the peas..i keep picking the fattest ones & eating them as i pass them..we got lots of strawbs tonight & i have had to freeze them as we are going away tomorrow & i didnt want to leave them in the bed in case they got eaten by slugs..:o)
