Dusted the slug-affected part of the garden with diatomaceous earth and removed the beer cups. It looks like I'll probably loose the red cabbage plant that had the most damage.

The peas planted in our second bed have started to sprout. We have two varieties in that bed, both from Burpee seeds: Super Sugar Snap and Oregon Sugar Pod Organic.

Scattered some more Rocky Top lettuce seeds to replace what the slugs ate.

I saw a young dragonfly clinging to the row cover in the first bed, but wasn't quick enough to get a picture. We had quite a few dragonflies visit us last year. One afternoon we got a real treat. We went out to the backyard, and there were dragonflies flying and swooping all over the yard. I've never seen so many at one time. My husband loves them, so it was especially fun for him to see that.

The seedlings are doing pretty well. I started a couple of tomatillos, and they're the fastest growing plants I have right now. They're huge compared to the rest. I'm going to have to find larger pots for them soon, because their roots are already starting to fill up the plastic drinking cups they've been living in since Monday. I've never grown tomatillos before, so I didn't know they'd grow so much so fast.
