An earworm to consider- I have been 14 years sober, so I seldom venture into this particular forum... but every time I read the title, I am hearing Foghorn Leghorn singing,

"Whiskey, Vodka, Rum and more- DO-DAH...DO-DAH!!! Staying sober is a bore, OH, DO-DAH DEY!!!"

Well, given that salt was an extremely valuable commodity, nobody ever really intentionally bothered with covering whole fields with salt. They'd just take a handful of salt and symbolically scatter it around, such as when Rome finally stomped Cathage.

Unintentionally salting the fields, on the other hand. . .

I have been told slugs also avoid copper and that a person can wind thin copper sheeting or copper tape material around items they don't want chomped. I have never tried this. I recall distinctly dropping pinches of salt directly on the slugs as a child and what happens after! I'm sure most slugs would avoid a salt barrier once they notice the result, but I need to utilize every square inch of garden space
