Sunday: D&D - Elf M. Sternberg
Sunday: D&D
Sunday was also a magnificent day. I made waffles for breakfast, mowed the lawn, and tended the garden in the morning. One of the stupice tomatoes is already showing a tomato bud, and the strawberry plant has sent up a second shoot. The basil isn't doing too good, however; kinda sad and wilted, even though I've put out a slug trap. The mint's kinda iffy, but it looks like it'll pull through.

Sunday evening we had our bimonthly D&D game. That was fun, although it was mostly combat and the DM had to ignore a few rolls to make sure we weren't all dead by the end of it. Kouryou-chan is trying to pay attention to the game, but she's still a little girl with a lot of energon and got bored when it wasn't her turn or she wasn't being called upon.

Dinner was finger food-- chicken bites, cheese, crackers, fruit-- whatever we had lying around. That was actually pretty good, all things considered. This was the third day in a row I've eaten a meal outdoors.

Current Mood: amused amused

Mint is damn near indestructible, given water... IIRC it's also a shade plant but don't quote me on that.

It's an everywhere plant, but it likes sun best.

Slug trap==sink a pie plate in the ground so they can crawl into it and fill it with cheap beer you've allowed to go stale. They'll drown themselves in it. Basil likes lots of sun and warmth and water.

I use a two liter bottle. Cut the top off, invert it, tape it down to form a tunnel. Dig a furrow in the earth so the funnel mouth is a little below ground, and shovel a little dirt into the funnel mouth up to the hole. half fill with beer.

When you have two liters of dead slug, replace.

That's a lot of dead slugs. Ew.
