Grrrrr....


I found a capsicum plant in my garden. No, I did not intentionally plant it. It just grew out of the garden compost. Two flowers bloomed and it showed promise of supplying me with 2 capsicums.


See those? But alas, one flower aborted 😢


So I was left with only one.


And then one day.....

Cakkkkk......
What the.....


Seriously????? 😲😲😲


Haiz......


I had it removed and relocated to a place far far away. My sole potential capsicum harvest dashed. Hampeh!


It ate some leaves on it's way up.


Pesky little critter!

    1. Despite it being Christmas, it is not easy to forgive and forget.

    2. Kris : Don't know if that is Sam. They all look alike hah..hah... Well, as you said, in the Christmas spirit, Sam is forgiven.

      Mun : Sadly, that is true. I guess it depends on the situation.

  2. I told you to apply some salt around the edge of the pot and the snail would run away. Otherwise you can spray those snail repellents around the pot. You should fry the escargot with capsicum and sambal belacan too.

    1. I know, I did not follow your advice. I was thinking that since it's the rainy season, the rain will wash off the salt and make my soil salty.

      Aiyo...I can't imagine eating the garden snails. LOL!

  7. You are so well versed in plants to know that this is a capsicum plant. I wouldn't know by just looking at the leaves without the capsicums.

  12. At first glance, I thought it was a small bat hanging upside down from the plant! Hmmm ... in that sense, luckily it was a snail and not a bat? ;)

    1. Sakit hati betul lah, Yati. Kita penuh harapan nak dapat cili, dia datang baham daun2 tu. Nanti PH akan pantau (chewah!) perkembangan cili tu. Kalau ada hasil, PH akan update nanti.
