Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails...

So, yesterday, in the big sprinkler box in the backyard, we found three new "pets." Huge enormous slugs. The boys were ecstatic. They promptly made a new home for them in a clear plastic container and fed them leaves. Unfortunately, they then abandoned the new pets to come inside, leaving the OPEN container very near my garden. Though it is close to the end of the year, I was not very pleased to go outside late last night to finish the weeding to realize that if the slugs had any slug sense, they would make a beeline for the last few ripening tomatoes on the vine...Sigh.
