turnip seedlings

I started the blog and then went on holiday also before I went on holiday I threw some turnip seeds in a plastic tub with some compost. My friend came over every few days and diligently watered my tomatoes,and other greenhouse occupants including the turnips.

I read on the back of the packet that I can get a winter crop if I plant now and as they are 5 inches high and all crowded together they need to be planted out. I’m worried however that they will get munched by the slugs. I cannot put down pellets because of the chickens and Duck. I don’t have the time to do a daily slug pick so what do I do?

I think I’m going to try cardboard collars on the plants or some sort of protection and some egg shells. I’ll keep you posted on progress.
