leilani turn the snails into a business, collect them and advertise them for petowners that use them for feed for reptiles., if you dont want money have them pay you in seeds or earth and such like , this way both win either way!n organic garden the snails are snapt up quickly , no poison in their system! safe for the other critters.

Thanks Karen for being a teacher, I dont know much about ustralian history this was quiet interesting for me, it just shows we use terms and have absolutly no idea what it means, and by using words that way we actually could make someone feel real bad or worse without wanting to, It makes me think anyway , I like abo art and want to learn bushfoods etc. have nothing against them I think that one got told a  lie and believes it without asking questions! I even found out how to get rid of a earthbound spirit like a hounted house, from an aboriginal, and its so easy to do , they have such a vast knowledge , I am sorry this one doesn,t come and ask!

Welcome to the rain experience!  Sunny here today so I'm getting outside to do something...anything will be better than what I've done for over a week now.  Rain rain stay away for just a bit please!  Hubby took dogs to the beach promising to remember to buy cat and dog food before coming home.  Off the computer into the sunshine!

I am investigating more about planting my potatoes in a tower.  The question is to use straw and/or compost and soil.  From one video using straw I was disappointed in the lack of what it produced.  My thinking is compost and soil.  What do you guys think?  I have my towers made of hog wire with left over pond liner wrap.

That's what I get from looking the term up on Wikipedia.

For us Australian challenged:

The term is used by the aboriginal people of Victoria, parts of New South Wales and Tasmania, describing the indigenous people's own word for themselves. It was originally a word from the North-Coast of New South Wales, recorded for the first time in 1834.[2]

hi everyone, I honestly didn,t envisage my blog getting so many answers, but this 2 legged feral is a koori, aboriginal, my hubby has seen and almost got him on 2 occassions the dogs bailed him up but he still got away, and today I think he,s been again in, tumboling over one of my settings with  pots on it , I am not a greedyguts all he had to do was ask , its the sneaky sly attitude I dislike!

I love our stories!  We ar going to get busted for our chatter!  I did have to tell old Mrs. Christianson that I stole her grapes.  My mom found out that I was hiding under the arbor stuffing myself.  Mrs. Christianson spoke only Norwegian so I wonder if she even knew what I was saying.  She just smiled at me.

Fruit trees were always fair game but didn't dare stepping into anyone's garden in rural 1940's and '50's CT.  If Dad ever found out, I'd be pulling weeds for the guy who owned the garden for a week ... and that's after I could once again sit! :)

We didn't even think to raid gardens of course we lived in the Mt.s of PA so there wasn't to many around.
