Lizards: Snail Exterminators

We usually have a hard time with peas down here in Florida. They just like it too cool for an extended period. Aren’t they one of the first things you far-north gardeners plant? When I got the first cold snap of the winter, I planted the ‘Magnolia Blossom’ snap peas that the rest of the Test Gardeners trialed last spring. Needless to say, they loved it. Great germination, still growing steadily. Some have had a bit of snail damage, and here’s the reason: My usual snail control is our great population of snakes, toads, and agama lizards. They apparently took a cruise to the Caribbean during the December cold spell, but they’re back working now.
