The garden snail. A formidable pest and one that has tormented gardeners for generations. I have experimented with many methods to control or in some cases eradicate these pesky critters, but whatever I try they still feast on my produce before I do. It is infuriating, but being angry at snails does not seem to work. So instead I have turned the problem on it’s head and embraced the garden snail with open arms and an empty stomach. From now on if I catch a snail eating my lettuce, I eat the snail. Simple, sustainable, effective and delicious!
