|Eggs go in the bath with 1Tbs vinegar and put in the fridge|

The next thing we will be doing is jello filled egg shells. This is a Easter tradition my mum did when I was a kid and I just love it. I will also be attempting to fill them with chocolate this year. I will be posting our egg filling trial on Friday night.
My salad garden is beginning to sprout its first two row of lettuce plantings, they aren't ready to be thinned yet but next week they will be. I put some store bought starts of fennel and dill in. My cucumbers are big and the weather is still too cold to transplant outside. I hope it gets above 40 at night soon, my living room is not set up to be a hothouse.
In my big garden the snap peas are getting to be 2"tall , beets, chard, and kale sprouting up. All is looking good.,well almost.
The dang slugs are killing me. I used all the natural tricks but, I did resort to an organic compound called "Sluggo". It is made of copper salts, it does the same thing as the copper strips, it shocks them. I just had it when I went outside and my broccoli plants had more holes and one had been mowed down completely. ARGGG!!! That's when I gave up on the totally natural approach. I am sorry but I really tried, the slugs won that battle.
