He was all tucked in his shell :|….I still was so excited….I have lived here almost my whole life, and been a gardener for 20 and have NEVER seen a snail here!
I put him on a plate, and waited…..and waited….and finally went outside to finish my chores.
I decided to make strawberry jam and so picked my strawberries and went to the store to get certo. When I got home my son asked me where the snail was. “On the table” I said “behind you”…he kept looking at me like I was loonie…and I kept telling him “behind you"…right there”!! He finally was like Mom…he is not there…”What!!!” I said and raced over….and this is what I saw.
We searched all around and under the table…….and whoohoo we found him! Do you see him?
He was so cool and finally was moving around.
We put him in a jar with lettuce and some rocks. I looked him up and he is a Brown Lipped Snail….or so I think . I did email a snail expert from Smithers BC and haven’t heard back from him yet. We will see….I think I should put some different food in there for him…rotten leaves and maybe an apple or something?…
Ok so that was my adventure for the day….oh I made strawberry jam too.
