I don’t think coffee grounds work on slugs

Slugs are eating my watermelons and I’m not impressed.

The internet said to try used coffee grounds so yesterday, gentleman Funko furnished me with the goods from his weekend caffeination, carefully dried for optimum sprinklage. Outlook not so good thus far, as I arrived home from work to find 3 fat slugs in and around my potted plants.

So we laid down a beer trap full of Amsterdam Mariner, figuring if the salty captain couldn’t sort this out, there’d be little hope for humanity and watermelons would be the least of our worries. An hour later, we found 2 slugs going for the trusty brew. What becomes of them by tomorrow remains to be seen…
