These are the newest creatures inhabiting our horseradish plant. I noticed the other day that holes were once again appearing in the leaves, so something was clearly making a meal of them. Sure enough, snails!
Of course I left them alone, as is my rule with the horseradish plant, our own little science experiment. We no longer seem to have any caterpillars or other noticeable bugs (though I'm sure there are lots of tiny ones), so I'm happy to leave the plant to the snails.
I wonder how snail eggs ever reached a sixth-floor balcony? I've never seen any mature snails up this high.
