Replacement Beans

The slugs have managed to decimate the French climbing beans and runner beans – only five out of forty stations surviving their onslaught! Luckily we have backup at the cottage. Chatting to a friend today, he mentioned he drinks half a can of cheap bitter (they prefer bitter to lager apparently, being British slugs I guess), lie the can on its side and they’ll climb up and in through the hole. So much easier than filling sunken pint pots, and you can add the slugs and old beer to the compost, and recycle the can. Nice, I’m off to drink several half cans of cheap bitter!
