This is my latest weapon in the war on slugs: Pet fur at the base of the plants.
Eggshells haven't worked, diatomaceous earth didn't work, the beer works but can't be done every night, and spraying the plants with slightly soapy water didn't deter them, either. I read that human hair and pet fur would also work, so when I took Tandi to the groomer's on Tuesday, they were happy to fill 2 gallon-sized baggies with pet fur for me. The white and red fur is Tandi's.
I'm running out of options here. Harvest is puny enough as it is:
I think the garden isn't getting enough sun, or enough food or something. I didn't pick this pepper--it either fell off by itself, or the slugs made it fall.
There's definitely room for improvement here.
