This year we put our lettuces on top of some patio tables we bought. When we need to use a table, it's a simple thing to put the lettuces on the ground, always remembering to put them back on the tables before nightfall. This has worked perfectly - we have not found one slug anywhere near the lettuces (or broccoli), and we haven't lost any lettuce or broccoli at all. It has been such a success, I just had to share it with all you nice folks on TF. Give it a try - lettuces and broccoli do very well in containers, by the way.

I'm glad your container gardening is paying off for you. No slugs! even better. It's so rewarding to be able to grow anything.Last year was a disaster for me so I didn't plant anything this year.
Thumbs up from me... ; )
