Thanks, Chanley, for the wonderful information. While I really enjoyed reading it, and I have a great respect for the little slimers, I still just can't stand the thought of running into one whilst happily digging in the garden. I can just feel my skin crawl and see myself doing a lovely little squeamish dance all over the yard, which my dd may think is for her entertainment
Everyone has some crazy little fear, don't they? I will start a garden, anyway, and maybe someday I'll get over it.
