Thanks! :>))

I finally figured out how to prevent the snails from eating the leaves. Crushed eggshells. lol!

10 Dec, 2017

 

Lots of bait too. I think Earwigs will eat them too.

11 Dec, 2017

 

Earwigs are not as bad as slugs and snails. Haven't seen many slugs and snails so far this season. It's been too dry and hot for them.

11 Dec, 2017

 

I love it .

14 Dec, 2017

 

Thanks! Snails love them so much, also! lol!

Awe no dont let tghose luittle beasts eat it put plenty of gravel around it making sure they cant ckimb on to any thiny close to it then drop down on to it.

I haven't seen any snails so far. It's been way too hot and dry for them. I've been putting out a lot of crushed eggshells. This may help. We have not had any rain so far this season. After, the first rains maybe some snails will come out. Then, I'll see how effective the eggshells will be.

16 Dec, 2017

 

Yes thats a good idea wait and see after when it rains I find pea gravel more effective than egg shells.

16 Dec, 2017

 

Unfortunately, pea gravel would not be good here. I have to apply mulch to save my plants from drying out so badly. We haven't had any rain so far this season in San Diego. My plants are really starting to suffer.

Thats a shame Andy I hope you dont loose any.

18 Dec, 2017

 

Well, I am still using all my reclaimed gray water from in the house. It helps. The plants really want some rain, though.

19 Dec, 2017

 

I am suprised you have nt had rain with the fires you had out there I heard on the news here the fires were very close to San Diego. Glad your grey wster is saving your plants.

19 Dec, 2017

 

No rain, yet! :>(( The big fire in San Bonsall (Fallbrook) is in northern San Diego County, it's a 45 minute drive north. It was very, very horrible! Luckily, it's 100 percent contained now.

It appears we may not receive any rain in San Diego through Christmas and beyond. This is really bad news. Most of California has been bone-dry! Northern California is forecasted to receive some rain tonight, though.

I am glad the fires are contained no and was nt near you.

How horrid not having any rain beyond Christmas. I hope you have a lot of rain for tonight though hope it fills your water butts .

Beautiful colour.....

Penny, we're not getting any rain...only Northern California is suppose to get some rain.

Thats a shame Andy..

22 Dec, 2017

 

It looks extremely dry for the foreseeable future, now.

Watching all the documentary s of weather its nothing unusual through out the world with the changing climate . At present Scotland is rising and England is sinking .

23 Dec, 2017

 

Penny,

It's very true. So many changes in a relatively short period of time.

25 Dec, 2017

 

Yes according to the documentary s going back on historic westher records its been worse where cities have ended up under the sea not just a few but lots.

25 Dec, 2017

 

Yes, most big cities in the world are close to oceans.

28 Dec, 2017

 

Yes they are may be for importing goods.
