Don’t count your seedlings …

Arrrrghhhhh! no sadly its not me practicing for International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19 every year). Some slimy snail or slug has just chewed 5 of my 7 Ha-Ogen Melon seedlings into stem stumps!

These little beauties, the seeds that is, were given to me by Corinne over at the Urban Vegetable Patch, (hi Corinne). I was so pleased when I saw them all happily growing away yesterday. One consolation is that a third seed is just breaking through. Anyway I’ve planted four more seeds today and hope they will evade the slimers this time around.
