Slug repellent

Post by Thumper2001 on Sun Sep 27, 2015 2:38 pm

My friends mum has just dug up all the veg from her garden and has given us a HUGE bag of carrot tops. I asked if they were organic and was told the only thing used in the vacinity was slug repellent.

Would you be happy enough to feed them to your buns, after giving them a good rinse?

I'm inclined to think yes, because it wouldn't have been on the carrots, because they wouldn't want to eat it either, would they Laughing

But I'm rubbish at this kinda thing!

I'd be wary. Consider how those carrots tops grow; they are bound to droop and touch the ground in places and if the they came in contact with the slug repellent, especially if they had used slug pellets that had got wet in rain or when watering, then there could be poisonous residue. This might and might not wash off.
On the other hand ... we get carrot tops from the shops and know nothing about where/how they were grown.

Tricky. I would certainly wash them and maybe put them into a glass of water over night to get more time to research, but Dee has got a point god knows what we by in the shops.

We're the sofa climbing pics on FB taken after the consumption? Maybe the slug pellets residue if there is any will turn them onto goats?

I see from your other post that the carrot tops have done nothing to curb the naughtiness!

I love the way a string of hay disappears slowly and the way they lick their little lips and mouths once they have finished. Love

Oh this has tickled me as I know bunnies love pears, Holly and my guinea pigs have it for a treat.  Can you imagine, I bet they thought all their Christmases and birthdays had come at once. ROFL ROFL
