To all the newts, frogs, hedgehogs and other creatures that keep my lovely lettuce patch so bug free. It has been the wettest summer in some time and articles like this just show that without our invisible support it would make organic vegetable growing (especially of the delicious salad munching type) nigh on impossible. Come later in the year when the slugs have grown in number I have to wash unwelcome meal additions out with the addition of vinegar into the water i wash my salad in. In the meantime our salad harvest is fantastic. Cheap labour paid in slugs; you can’t beat it.
