Each little slug here Cuttin' a rug here

So I've been a bit busy recently and thus my garden has been a tad neglected. It has been making the bees happy because the self-seeded phacelia came up and flowered.

So I will show you what I did today. I turned this... (see all those pretty flowers!)

into this:

Yeah, there are still weeds, but it's a shit load better than it was. At least tomorrow I'll be able to find the slugs easier.

All my potatoes in these rows did come up. A lot are missing now:

all because of mutant slugs. And this is what a decimated potato plant looks like after slugs have been eating them for weeks:

And yes, it is from slugs and nothing else (because no one ever seems to believe me that slugs eat my potato plants). How do I know? I picked at least 50 slugs out of my potato plants today. That's a lot of slime.

Ick. Slime. I hope you succeed in your effort to de-slug your garden!

Making the bees happy is something you should be proud of!  I heard spreading coffee grounds around will de-slug your garden.  Apparently slugs don't like caffeine.

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 
       

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.

      You know, it just occurred to me.. why would Josh even think he deserves another hearing? He is nobody but a minor D-list player.. and a bad one at that. Yeah, I know we're all equal under the law, but... he's not all that..
