Transplanting slug damaged plants

Sorry for the dark pictures but we spent all day planting more stuff in the garden and by the time I thought to take a picture.... it was dusk.

We put in all the beans: green, black and kidney. Transplanted some parsley the slugs had dined on. Our lone peanut plant survivor was transplanted to the garden. Transplanted some of the Kale (most actually) some transplants were older and some were still quite small but... I'm hoping under the row cover they will thrive so planted them anyway - if they don't make it I shall have to buy some as I'm out of Kale transplants now. Transplanted a bunch of leek too.

We are hoping that the row cover will continue to help everything thrive underneath. We had them open all day yesterday while we were working out there but for the most part I think we'll keep them covered until they are strong enough to withstand a nip and tuck here and there from the slugs.

The orchard, mostly in bloom - bad lighting, I'll try again but its cloudy and raining today.
