Ravished radishes

After having fantastic initial success with our radishes we had great hopes for them. We took a side step when our daughter decided to wash the newly picked veg in thes water butt and lost said radish.

We now face yet another challenge, slugs! Having approached the radishes from the near side they looked leafy and large.

As you can see healthy looking specimens. However look at them from the other side and.....

Completely ravished! What looked plump and juicy was starting to implode. They're all missing chunks! So new 2 minute job for the weekend, make a snail/slug trap. We've been told that beer makes a great trap. Put some in a pot/deep dish and they die happy. Question is which beer works best? Will post the findings of our results.
