Hello my friends!
It’s been a busy busy week….!
After the flood two days before, F’s dad took us snail hunting! Yep, snails!!!!! We went up the mountain and found snails half-bared in the ground. Oh, the joy! I really enjoyed climbing up the hill, the smells of the plants and wet soil and the promise of eating delicious snails….! I’m waiting for the next rain…..
Did you know that after you pick up snails you have to let them eat row flour or raw pasta for a couple of days so that their intestine is clean for consuming?! As we were through that stage, having the snails in a bucket, F had the wonderful idea of building a small snailfarm!!!!
Those little flowers open after the sunset and smell great. Also since I have plenty of free time (sarcastic speaking), I signed up to a pilates class except the yoga one that I attend already! Have to work on that alignment and the tension on my shoulders, right?
We are working like crazy on the snail house! I haven’t even noticed that our white bougainvillea has blossoms.
Ta da! Our snail house is ready! We found a polyester tank from work, opened windows but installed sieves for insects (and for keeping the snails inside their home), filled it with soil and moved it under the trees for shade.
The snails are in! All 12 of them! So far everything is going as it should according to all the bibliography F has read! Yep! He has done some serious research! Well? What do you think? Will it work? After working in a fishfarm for 10 years, should I consider a change of career????
