Unwanted Visitors

My garden pot is growing so well. All the herbs are coming up. I am so excited to finally have a successful garden! The parsley is growing, the oregano is growing, the thyme and dill are growing, the fennel and strawberries are growing and the mint is just growing wild. But this morning I found out that my garden pot was visited. Visited by unexpected and unwanted visitors. Those unexpected and unwanted visitors were slugs! Gross! They had eaten holes in my mint. I am not actually sure whether it was a caterpillar or a slug but when we looked under all the leaves, we couldn't find any caterpillars so we are assuming that it was a slug.


  1. Oh dear...looks like someone enjoyed a feast!

    I am having trouble with sparrows eating my new lettuce seedlings grr! Have placed some wire mesh over them and hopefully they will get the message lol!

  2. Thankyou for your kind comment. I am hoping that the mint will grow back soon.
