Love the snail photo, but then I'm not growing the plant. Snails have great variation in color and size. I've been out of town for a few days, but back now.
Welcome back. Yeah...this one was escargot size.
I've had escargot, but not wild about it. Tasted mostly like garlic and butter, two of my favorite flavors. Not sure I needed to add snails to the mix. My sister fights snails in her California garden all the time. She uses diatomaceous earth which is not a poison.
Doesn't sound like your sister is fond of escargot either....
