Beware of Pests!

When seeding this month, birds are not the only problem. Slugs and snails love chomping on new plants and will damage your seedlings. Be sure to keep checking up on seedlings once you have sown them and possibly use extra precaution by using a solution on your new plants in order to keep these pests away.
