Attempting to keep my garden looking its best. The current weather pattern is most conducive to the multiplying of snails. As it has been raining this evening, the snails will be on 'walkabout' (slither-about?), so I am about ot go outside, armed with a torch, some disposable gloves and wearing old boots. My aim is to tread on as many snails as I can. It's a horrible "job" and I feel like a murderer, especially when the snails have their little eyes out on stalks, as they slither along. But they are eating their way through the plants at an amazing rate. Holes in all the succulent leaves and lengths of flower stems stripped to almost nothingness. So, this is my confession....I am about to murder at least 100 snails by torchlight. Is that too horrible for words?
