I have picked so many giant snails out of my front yard, I’m starting to fear going out there. Normally I just pick the ones I find in the process of my regular gardening. On Sunday it was drizzling which is perfect snail picking weather, if you didn’t know, and I got my bucket and went to town. I stuck my gloved hands into corners and moved rocks and dug around in bushes.

And I kept finding more and more and more snails. Big giant ones. On the lawn. In the future pumpkin patch area. Around the porch. By the window. It started freaking me out. Where are all these snails coming from?

I don’t know anything about snail biology and I don’t want to but I found two on the tree that were all tangled up and apparently getting it on. Can’t they do that in someone else’s yard?

And of course I read too many Stephen King stories when I was a kid and in the back of my mind I can’t help but worry what will become of me if the snails take over the world.

    Creepy. Can you have a legit snail infestation? I’m afraid to Google it. Every time I see more bugs than I think I should, I start to worry whether it’s an unusal infestation but I can never stand to Google it. Except bedbugs. I Google bedbugs like once a week.

    I don’t have them. I just worry. Still come visit.

    You must have a lot of water in your yard!

    I’ve heard the tree in your yard is like the Poconos for snails.
