I have echinecea or coneflower - whatever your pleasure

The neighbor's cat has claimed my garden as his personal space.  I hate that cat. 

I have found some huge slugs in the garden this year.
I am not sure why people continue to suggest that I use beer to catch and kill them. Why would I waste beer?  I heard that using cheap beer is no better than filtered fairy piss and it does not attract the slugs.
I am certainly not using good beer.
Just the other day I found myself on the way to Baskin Robbins to get my favorite sundae.  I realized that the cost of that sundae is just a dollar less than a 6-pack of beer.  I drove home instead.  I do not think I will ever go to Baskin Robbins again unless I have a coupon. 
Something is nibbling on my flowers and leafy vegetables. Whether it is the slugs or the damn cat, it needs to stop. 
The Rudbeckia should be blooming soon.
You can see the collard plants behind this one.  

My collards do not seem to be doing very well while my cuke vines are growing like crazy. I am going to tame them this weekend.  I have a few peppers growing and the tomato plants are blooming.  
Hopefully, I will have something to harvest next week.
