A bad romance

Having a heck of a time with slugs this year as noted in a comment over at Wild Suburbia.

Each morning, I get to my garden plot and spend the first few moments doing the dirty deed. I use a garden spade. I look under all pots, containers and as many rocks as I can find.

I think the slugs gravitate to my plot because of the many delicious and delicate things I have planted. The carrots have been decimated each time I've sown them.

I imagine the slugs singing "Bad Romance" while they chomp and chew through my garden at night. Here is my favorite version sung by the very talented University of Oregon a cappella group, On The Rocks.

So how do you deal with your garden pests?
