An act of aggression

As most of you know, I’ve been trying to grow a garden from seed since January. All seemed to be going well until the bug community decided my plants made an excellent snack.

Members of the slug and worm community, the coleus is for decoration only. Go eat a weed already!

If the coleus wasn’t bad enough, they chewed a few of my heirloom tomato plants down to sticks. My babies! I’ve been growing these since January. The gauntlet has been thrown down. As Bugs Bunny used to say, “Of course you know, this means war.”

    Remove the leaves the culprits half ate (they can’t just eat a whole one and leave the rest alone) and let the plant rest. You might give it a shot of Miracle Grow. Coleus’ are hearty and will grow back full, anyway if you clip the center leaves that are just starting to grow, the plant will grow fuller. I know all this because in the 60’s this was a popular plant that was in most households camouflaging other plants.

    Love, Wing
