This wet, wet summer is inviting the slugs to my garden! They are not welcome here. Just look at the devastation they bring!! The beds they have devoured the most are very narrow 1ft wide raised beds full of Napa Cabbage and Green Leaf Lettuce. I've heard people use shallow pans of beer to lure the slugs to their drunken death, but my beds are a little too narrow to fit shallow dishes and plants. A friend suggested that I try crushed egg shells, and so far it is helping. Apparently they don't like the feel of the sharp shells on their slimy bellies. We save the egg shells for crushing and sprinkling over the garden anyway. This time we just left them on top of the soil and made them a chunky texture instead of crushing them fine. Crushing egg shells turns out to be a pretty fun project.
