Daily Prompt: Time to ooze

Two slugs mating

For slugs it is a way of life, oozing I mean. They know nothing else as to ooze their way through life. They even create life with a little oozing. When I discovered this in the garden I had to change my mind about spreading the snail poson. These two slugs carried on regardless, they were building a new family oozing their way into the creation of life. Snails being both female and male, they do not have to be fussy. If two snails meet then they get down to the oozing business.

They are both equipped with the same features, so there is no great preliminary introduction, they have a wonderful oozy time.

Even our ever present building tribe ooze around with strange substances. One day it is black and another cream coloured Now and again it might be white, but it all has its purpose. You cannot apply the same ooze for everything, it is a science.  Sometimes I am reminded of kids who like to play in the sand at the sea-side. Just add some water and you have the ideal mud mixture. It oozes by itself. At the moment every builder is walking around with a bucket. They are applying layers of ooze to the newly constructed walls. It is important as it supplies a foundation to further ooze layers. Today the chief builder sent everyone a letter, telling how the work is progressing.

There will be various steps of ooze production, and in the second half of September we will be painted with two layers of light green ooze for the final steps of ooze manufacture. At least the ooze production will be finished, but they have other devious tricks to continue with until October.

And so to come to a conclusion there are all sorts of ooze, in various colours. It is messy, smeary, and can be sticky. Beware of the ooze, it can creep up on you when you least expect it.

  1. An easy way to get rid of garden snails and slugs is to cut hair clippings into tiny pieces–1/4 inch or less–and sprinkle them around your plants. It works wonderfully and isn’t toxic to other creatures. For the slugs, leave the hair longer so they get tangled up in it and die..With the snails, the shorter pieces get under their shells . Hair also contains nitrogen and is a good fertilizer.

    • Thanks for the tip, but this year we had quite a slug free summer, probably because of the building work. I usually just pick them up and throw them out of the garden. My ideal solution is now not to have plants that they like to eat for dinner. It has worked. I very rarely see a slug in the garden as I do not have a laid dinner table.
