After a very hot start to the summer, my garden is finally starting to produce. Today I picked a large gadzuke squash, basil, oregano, and thyme to throw in a seasonal pasta dish.
My eggplants and tomatoes are on their way to being picked too. To keep those plants from being eaten by slugs, I put copper coils around the bases. I purchased copper scrubbing pads, unraveled them and wrapped it around the base of each of my tomato and eggplants. Supposedly the slugs (which have a slimy coat) get shocked if they touch the metal. So far so good!
