The slugs have the courtesy to hide, the snails however flaunt their rebellion.
I am not a slug-snipper, or a snail-cruncher on purpose, I dislike what they do to my garden and this year the odd organic pellet might have made an appearance, But I have also have allies on my side.
I could say I do not wish the snails/slugs any harm.....
.....this would be a lie.
and if you want an earworm to go along with this post I give you Al Stewart 'The Year of the Cat', just replace cat with snail and you're away.
