Who let the slugs out....

Usually, at this time of year, we'd be wading ankle-deep through slugs in our garden.  It's damp yet still relatively warm, conditions in which they have thrived in previous years.

However, this year there are hardly any slugs or snails to be seen at all.

I know almost nothing about the procreation of slugs, but I can only assume that they made their babies in March in the expectation that warmer weather was on the way, but the very cold April killed them all off.

Not that I'm complaining.  We may have lost some of our vegetable crops to many other factors this year, but none of them were attacked by slugs, usually one of the most serious pests in our garden.  

Roll on another cool April next year...
