What do you do...

...with a bucket of snails collected from the strawberry patch? P1070447

Hold a snail race, of course:

snail race

The winner (and the losers) get re-homed in the woods, safely away from fruit and vegetables
P1070463

We only realised later that you are supposed to race them in a circular track starting from the centre to the perimeter...would have been much more practical as the vast majority of the snails gave up under the pressure and scattered.  I guess Scottish snails don't have a competitive streak.

***no snails were harmed in the making of this blog post***
