My gardening nemesis


These slimy tube alien beasts have no taste for weeds, just carefully nurtured vegetable seedlings, and they have truly been thriving in the damp conditions of late. Now, however, the weather has turned and they will hopefully return to whence they came. For the vegetables though, it will be a race against time to see if they bear anything worthy of the plate. I have my doubts. What a season it's been for the amateur grower: we've had so much rain, I feel I would have been better of trying to grow myself an acre of rice.
