Naturally the first thing we need (according to Ralf) is a Japanese duck, which eats slugs. However, the duck needs a pond, which will eat up at least a square meter of precious garden.
Note: We have maybe 5-6 square meters to work with and frankly, I'd rather have chickens. All the cool gardeners have chickens.
At this point in the conversation K made me very proud with her next words.
K: I have an idea. We'll each get a shovel. Except Mommy. Mommy can stay in the house and read her book. And the rest of us can dig the pond for the duck.
That's my girl.
