I love mums. So do snails. Every fall I get a mum. Every fall the snails eat my mum. This year I planted marigolds. The snails ate them also. I really don’t like snails.
I won a door prize at a ladies event Saturday evening – a mum. I was very excited. It is even purple – my favorite color.
I decided this time I am not going to feed my mum to the snails. I checked with Bill – our resident expert on all things slithery. He told me that snails are most active at night and suggested I bring my mum inside after dark.
So now every night I put the chickens up. I put the dogs up. And I bring my mum inside.
So far this addition to my routine has been successful. It is Monday and my mum is still alive.
I thought mums were indestructible. Have you tried coffee grounds? It works against ants.
