Normally any snails I come across in my garden get flying lessons

But somehow this time, I didn’t have the heart

update

    They would have been flying on a package holiday all together like that if it had been me!

    I throw them out on the concrete driveway where the grackles can get them. I think of it as “recycling.” Ditto Japanese beetle larvae and miscellaneous grubs.

    Now what are they up to…? ;-)

    Creative hibernation? Don’t they seal up the front door over the cold months? Doors have got stuck together, maybe..

    I didn’t know that about them hibernating. They were all in a bit of a huddle at the back of the flowerbed so it’s possible. I certainly don’t think that’s how snails make baby snails, anyway.

    I did leave them out in the open in case any birds wanted them but we don’t seem to have any enterprising thrushes around here.

    Three more and a clove of garlic and you’d have a passable entree.

    Research shows the little sods can ‘home’ and find their way back if not taken far enough. They need to be thrown at least 10 metres.

    You could try experimenting by marking them. If they come back, then it’s not far enough.

    They get lobbed over a road and two stone walls. If they can get back from that, they’ve more or less earned the right to stay…
