We may have a slug problem in our greenhouse. We have row after row of seedling flats which have been diligently soil-blocked, seeded, watered, and warmed for the seedlings to come up. 2 or 3 days after their emergence, they have been chomped down.

This is a bit puzzling since the flats are on top of a table. These have to be some industrious slugs. So tonight, a reconnaissance mission is planned. We are heading down to the greenhouse well after dark to check out what has been devouring our brassicas. We will do what needs to be done to save the remainder and to prevent the future seedlings from becoming slug food.
