Filing recipes for later.

All of my plants got eaten by snails / slugs this year, including my (eight) beloved eggplants. It's hard to motivate myself to plant more because it feels like, what's the point? Unfortunately, I refuse to use poison or pesticides, because I don't want that near my vegetables, so it seems like I'm just paying to feed the snails and slugs.
This is just a reminder to myself not to give up, and to plant more things in pots away from snail / slug territory. The payoff will be worth it; I'll have eggplant to use in these recipes. Right?

Super lazy Eggplant Parmesan.
- eggplant
- mayo
- panko breadcrumbs
- onion powder, garlic powder, fresh parsley, oregano, thyme
- grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat 425° oven
Mix breadcrumbs with seasoning and cheese
Spread mayo on eggplant
Dip in breadcrumb mixture
425°, five minutes, flip, five more minutes or until golden brown
Serve with tomato sauce and extra cheese

Wish me luck in my battle against the snails and slugs.

What about using some kind of organic repellent? My parents have been gardening a long time and I don't think they've ever needed to use pesticides or poisons to keep our plants alive o_0

That stupid hill behind our house is a garden pest haven because of all the ground cover. They like to hide under the leaves and stuff. After a few days it looked like I hadn't planted anything at all.. they even chewed through stems :(

But yes. I don't know what to use. I know copper sheets are supposed to make them go away, but that seems expensive..
