We actually put time in our own garden yesterday! Ezra, who is our official bug wrangler, (and trainer..."You can't get Roly-Poly's to walk up sticks...." "Yes I can...." And then he does. Shows what I know.) found the largest snail I think I've seen. His name is Steve. All the snails I find are Steve. Why, do you ask? I have no idea. That is just the way things are. Accept it. He looks like a Steve though, don't you think?
He let Ezra pet him, and didn't hide his head for a good 5 minutes or so. Ezra wanted to keep him- I told him he could not, that is just the way things are. Accept it.
He agreed to set Steve free once I pointed out to him that that little brown spot by his pinky was snail poop.
