    I have never even considered licking a slug

    my one experience of haying was at a Benedictine Monastery in Michigan, and I was involved with tossing bales up into the barn, and eventually the hay and dust became too much -  I have learned that I need to have ready access to benadryl to be able not to be handicapped by my various allergies.

    Thanks for sharing.

    do we still have a Republic and a Constitution if our elected officials will not stand up for them on our behalf?

      ...bailing process that turned me off to grass in general -- to the point that I learned the joys (and lack of mowing/care) of moss-gardening. Over the past 4 years, I've turned my entire yard area around my house (here, that's an acre of space) into a place I call Moss Haven -- moss will overwhelm grass and weeds, requires only an appropriate amount of sun and water, and has the added benefit of staying green throughout the year, even when covered by snow.

      (Ken, what a stimulating diary -- just read all of the exceptional and conversational comments; so different from standard fare at Daily Kos.)
