Slugs Be Gone! Nuking with Cucs

I am sure you would agree that one of the greatest disappoinments for an organic gardener is to find crop beds decimated by critters.

My Winter Garden - Part Seven ( 'From Siberia')

Here is my up-and-coming Dwarf Siberian Kale, Brassica napus ssp. pabularia. They must feel right at home at the moment, considering the antarctic-inspired weather here in Sydney.
