A couple weeks ago Debbie and I were visiting her parents in Alliance. It was dark when we were leaving. Walking to the car I noticed something in the driveway with a glistening trail behind it. I looked closer and realized it was the biggest slug I’d ever seen. It was probably 6 inches long. Then I looked around and there were 20 more, all 3 to 6 inches in length. Debbie’s dad ran inside and got a salt shaker and flashlight, and for the next 15 minutes we went to work.
Another gross thing I’ve had crop up lately is mushrooms in my yard. Twice I’ve had clumps of brown mushrooms appear out of tree roots just below the surface of the grass. These were no ordinary mushrooms, either. These were smelly. When I say smelly, I mean they reeked! They smelled like a dead animal, or as I told my wife “rotting flesh.” And guess what else … some of these clumps had maggots crawling in them! YUCK!!
Does anyone have any comment on slugs or mushrooms?
