From the Kitchen Graden: When Snail’s Pace Turns to Sprint

Things in the garden are looking up, like the view of this snail I got grazing on the Lobaria lichens on one of old trees. The snail’s pace of winter changing to spring has speeded up towards summer. It was over 40 degrees in the greenhouse the other day with the windows open. Sometimes, plants in the ground just sit tight and wait for some warmth before shooting outward and upwards. The tulips came into flower earlier this year—we are just about to cut the last stems this week—and finally the lettuces are putting on growth. I just hope the snails find more to munch on up in the trees and will leave our crops alone.
