We keep chickens and as a result, we eat a lot of eggs – my boys love them – boiled, baked, poached, scrambled or fried! I used to put the shells in the compost, but now I collect them in a bowl and let them dry out. Then I get a wooden spoon and bash them (good for those frustrating moments in life!) – the resulting mosaic of shells is perfect for sprinkling around plants that the slugs love in your vegetable garden. Evidently the slugs don’t like the scratchy texture – any more good slug repelling tips out there?
