Battle on Slugs and the new salad crop

Below are some quick photographs of our new salad crop. The slugs ate our last lot that we planted out after the weather got better- the high amount of rain seemed to make the slugs come out more! Therefore we have started again with a few new rows of Kopfsalat to try. Also we have put down some things to deter the Slugs. I have heard that egg shells crushed up and scattered around the raised beds can deter Slugs as they do not like the feel of sliding over the gritty/sharp surface – we shall give it a go! Also, we have made a beer bottle catcher and put it in the allotment in the hope of reducing our slug population – the slugs smell the beer fall into the bottle and then cannot get out. Slug love beer so we are hoping this works – fingers crossed!
