...and it is extra crunchy!

And full of little snails!

I don't use any pesticides in the garden so it is an insect's paradise out there.

We also have loads of mint! But I do hate snails!

I think snails are delicious, but these little ones are too small.
Oh well...
The mint is delicious!

I thought about collecting some snails during the last rain - they were everywhere! We just eat the mint instead.

I picked up some garlic at the market yesterday so I'm ready to go!

Even the hungriest of snails will not do away with the obstinacy of mint. It gets EVERYWHERE.
You could cook "lumache alla romana" (there a sort of sweet mint "mentuccia" in the tomato sauce)
