I was reading somewhere about a healthy garden is the one that support diversity of life, in the form of plants, veggies, butterflies, bugs, insects, ants, slugs, snails etc. And definitely Man will be the central feature within this diversity, being the one consciously working to create such environment. But there will be food chain within these diversity. One will chew another. One is the food of another.
Every morning, these marks are very much visible on concrete pavement beside the house. I know these are made by one of the many creature thriving in the garden... slugs and snails!!
Snails and slugs had been chewing our marigolds and soft veggies....... Oh well...
