Pests are about

Usually Richard gets very little problem with pests but this year slugs and snails have attacked his seedlings and aphids have started attacking his young plants.

As a rule Richard hates pesticides, preferring nature to do its thing, but as these plants are in his kitchen Richard has used grazers g2 and g3 to tackle these pests.

Mice or rats have also appeared in the garden, which is inevitable with chickens
