I understand that slugs and other insects (cutworms, etc.) can be a problem with all that residue in place.  How does one best go about controlling them in that scenario?

Sounds like planting cold-hardy seedlings (brassica?) in a winter-killed

using corn gluten might have some potential.  I would need to try that
some days.
