slugs, ugg.

I have been very fortunate in not having slugs bother any of my hosta beds but yesterday I saw little bites taken off several of my tiny new seedlings that I have in a trough. Today, there isn't a leaf left on any of the seedlings!

I'm suspecting slugs and sure do hope the tiny little plants have enough energy in the roots and stems to make new leaves. I was so thrilled to have a few streaked seedlings and today - nothing.

I put two saucers of beer in the trough so I hope to see drowned uglies tomorrow.
