I’m just in from a little mucking about in my garden. Snail hunting actually. For years I didn’t have any snails in my yard, but the last couple they have invaded front and back with a vengence, so every once in a while I grab my tongs (yes, I’m a bit squeamish about actually touching them), a container, and set about collecting snails. I look under leaves, and on the sides of my foundation. I disposed of about 10 this morning and consider that a good day’s work. A friend of mine calls it hand harvesting. That sounds a bit creepy to me, but I suppose “hunting” isn’t much better.
Thought I’d just share a few snaps from my garden. I promise, no pics of snails. Maybe another day.
