Hi there, how are you?
I planted nasturtiums in the garden in late spring, as they started to grow they were promptly eaten by the mollusc hoards. Tried again early summer, eaten again pfft! Nasturtiums are so easy to grow, you just poke the seed into the soil and they grow but it wasn’t working so I planted them into pots and placed the pots on the window sill (along with other plants that should be easy to grow but were eaten).
This worked beautifully
Once big enough they needed to go out into the garden, the mollusc hoards struck again and ate a third of my plants to stumps. So for the past month or two I have been going out in the dead of night with a torch and a pot, picking the slimy visitors off my precious plants and taking them over to the nearby woods.
I now have six lovely healthy nasturtium plants.
They’re looking fine and I decided to celebrate their beauty by drawing some of the flowers.
I’ve drawn some flowers, buds. seeds and spent some quality time in the garden drawing and painting.
Tonight I will be seen once again in the pitch dark picking slugs and snails off the plants by torch light, fun times.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Till next time, have fun x
