Re: Hum.......

I know, Theresa, it's just sickening to find your plants shredded by
slugs (or anything else, for that matter).  It's just the extra wet
weather we've been having this year. 

Seems to me that we have wet years and some things suffer while
others are in hog heaven; in dry years the wet lovers suffer (and we
have fewer slug problems) and the plants who like it dry are happy. 
Now, what I'd like is a year with enough rain, but not too much so
that *everything* is happy:-)
