Dear Family & Friends
I've never seen slugs this BIG in our garden...in fact I thought we don't have naked snails = slugs...yes we do have snails but slugs are SHOCKING new find this year!
Our chickens love snails...it's fun watching them when we occasionally throw a snail into their pen...they chase each other for it, just like basketball game! But, when we threw these slugs in....they were very skeptical and scared...till eventually one brave hen showed them that it was posh food - escargot!!
|These are gross-looking slugs in a dirty bowl.|
I let marigolds grow in many parts of the garden....but decided that they are growing far too big that I pulled some out that were growing amongst my courgette. Then....I saw and found this SHOCKINGLY BIG courgette... I literally couldn't lift it up....I know....feeble me that is! So, I had to call my husband to come and give me a hand!
See how big it grew unnoticed amongst the vegetation?? It's over two feet long...the biggest one so far we had in the garden!! Definitely not for stuffed courgette meal (that will be a big punishment;P)....I think I will have to give this one to our greedy chickens instead :)
I don't know what more shocking things there are in the garden....but for this week...these are just the two cases that have kept us amused:)
Hope you have lovely surprises where you are too:)...nice surprises would be better:)
