ive just been out in the garden and already ive collected 22 slugs and a couple of snails. if anyone would like some please send me a message and i will post them on to you. free of charge, ill even pay the postage.
little known fact, but they make great pets,, they need very little exercise and food for them can be home grown.
let your child be the first to have a slug pet,, they will be the envy of every child in the neighbourhood.
Christmas orders are been taken now , so avoid the rush and order today .

What a great idea, Irish! I think I'll pinch your brainwave and offer them at the gate on a table with a tin for money. If I put them in a lidded container they won't be able to escape. We may well make our fortune!!!!

Wonderful idea, Blodyn! Much better than sticks of rock or ceramic ornaments. Advert could say ' Moving souvenir - one you will never forget'. lol.

reminds me of when my children were little my eldest daughter gemma decided that she would keep some snails as pets, she named them peter and paul. one day we were all busy in the garden when a cry rang out! we calmed gemma down enough to find out what was wrong she yelled that my youngest daughter who was about two at the time was eating peter, she was quite happily crunching away and had green slime running down her chin. I have been known to tell this story to new boyfriends much to the girls embarrassment

my god? you serious about that amount andrew?

Now I think Blodyns idea of setting up a cottage industry and painting the snail shells is a great idea. Just think of all the coats of arms for each country and county that could be represented from all the members on 'Grows on you', and...... to follow..... snail races to raise money for more plants for the garden so that the snails can attack again!
It never ends does it!

lol now your talking Grenville, endless amount of things we could do with the snails, and lets face it theres no end to the amount of them lol.

Send them to france, they eat them there don't they? LOL. I really enjoyed reading all your comments here. British humor, sorry Irish, also Irish humor. You know of course snails are bisexual, meaning one can fertilise itself. That means every single snail needs to be found and destroyed. What do you do with them Irish? Take them outof the bucket and step on them, one by one, then feed them to the ducks in the nearby park? It is a slimy business. I really cracked up about that snail mail, good one!

i take them out of the bucket , and give them a good talking to Marquerite lol when that doesnt work i divide them up between the bird table and the shed roof lol

What a pity we don't eat them - there are so many of them in the world. Imagine them all heaped up together!

there would certainly be no food shortage if we did eat them Celandine
