Just one slug? 

Just one slug. There was quite a bit of rain (for us) in May and June, and I saw a slug. Some snails, too, that apparently had come in from nursery plants. I stepped on two large ones by mistake; disgusting sensation.
It never rains here in the winter. (Never in the same sense that I never worry about elephants trampling the garden.)
I'm fairly jealous of Todd's crocus; I should try to get these next autumn. Despite the fact that it snows for nine months of the year here, there are occasionally periods when it isn't snowing, and I've had crocus in bloom on January 1st, which to me is more exciting than almost anything that summer has to offer.

:o :o I wish, we get slugs and snails over here from January until December  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:. After stepping on hundreds of them you get over the disgust  ;) ;)

And no rain in winter....interesting....here we get rain from January until December too...that comes with the slugs (or is it the other way round?)  ;D ;D

...and I take the banaticus!
Do we arrange a sluggy competition? Who collects the less slugs and snails in 10 minutes?

I get PRECIPITATION from January to December...for 4 months at least it's in the form of snow...can't see the slugs then!  But they will be waiting for the first of the SPRING crocus for sure!
