Laura's garden

Slugs are relentless so I have to attack from multiple fronts:  I have had good results with a tuna or cat food can, sunk into the earth and filled with beer.  It attracts slugs and then drown in beer, a happy death.  I crush my egg shells in a food processor and spread them--won't get them all, but some and the garden needs calcium.  Also, put your coffee grounds around the plants that the slugs are eating. Finally, I spread diatomaceous earth, but this has to be reapplied after it rains.  If you can get a nice toad to live in your garden, he'll eat the slugs as well.
