I think this year must be 'the year of the snail'. Every morning I go out and collect between 5 and 18 of the beastly things. Just when I think I am getting somewhere near seeing the back of them and only picking up 3 or 4, the next morning I find 10 or more. What is the answer? They have eaten my courgette and Market More cucumber, climbed the bean poles and eaten the leaves 3ft up. If I was French I would be rubbing my hands in glee and saving pounds on meat bills instead I am spending a fortune on pellets!
