Go faster stripes, beds, carrots, garlic 

Go faster stripes! Well, not quite. As they are made of copper they also function as keeping the slugs and snails off of the beds. Apparently the pesky gits get an elctric shock as they go over the copper, and RETREAT! We’ve also watered in some nematodes, just to finish the job.

The garlic is growing nicely (more than i can say for the floppy onions) in the foreground, and the carrots in the beds equally so (the transplants will be ready to eat soon!) If the pesky carrot root fly doesn’t get them that is – although they shouldn’t be able to get over the pallet that i chopped up and installed as ‘extra protection!’
