Please! Please! Can someone suggest a vegetable that I could plant in a sheltered sunny position, that the slugs will not eat! I am totally fed up with them after they devoured all my tomato and courgette plants, that I thought were suitably mature enough for them not to bother about!!

Not really - hungry slugs will still damage any plant even if they don't like it much!  The only real solution is to get rid of the slugs, reduce their numbers significantly or prevent them from reaching your veg.  Personally, I use organic slug pellets and an occasional night visit with a torch to pick them off.

I agree with Bob I use pellets and pop out at dusk. Slugs are such a pain

I do the same !! Pellets and a hunt in dark places during the day.
