Thrifty gardener

I need some more ties for the garden, to tie up the sweet pea plants, so I got cutting up some old tights into strips:

They make perfect plant ties. That's a trick I learnt from my dad.

Today I planted some more climbing and runner beans seeds, to replace the plants the slugs have destroyed. I also planted some nastirtium seeds, I hear the slugs don't like them much. And the flowers are pretty, and edible too!

Slug death count today: 39
