Emraa regarding slugs, try and encourage birds into your garden as they will eat the slugs. If you don't want to go down the chemical route a night time slug hunt by torch light will be needed. Put some beer in a bucket and just put them in there. There are other methods such as copper rings for pots, gravel and even crushed egg shells although I have never tried that one. You will never be rid of slugs entirely but you can keep the numbers down if you do some of the above.
Good luck with your veg growing and keep us posted.
