We’ve been eating lettuce, arugula and endive from plants in containers for a few weeks now. It’s been very nice. Then day before I found a slug on a leaf. I threw it away and washed the rest very thoroughly.
Last night I went out later than usual to pick for dinner, and found every last lettuce just crawling with slugs. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen that many slugs before, even on the Olympia peninsula (mercifully, these were small slugs). This grossed me out so badly I nearly threw up- and it takes a lot to gross me out. I’m usually the one at the table grossing everyone else out. But this did it.
Never eating salad again. And definitely buying slug bait next time I go into town.
