Little one

I bought some sawi from the market. My girl helped me to clean the vegetables. She spotted a little one on the leave. It was very much alive and it was moving very slowly.

so tiny


still crawling


clearer picture


a little bit slimy

My girl kept it but too bad it didn't survive.

Have you come across any other little ones hiding inside the bundles of any vegetables?

  1. I have seen a lot of these in the vegetables before... but there was once I found a vegetable maggot (not sure what it is... look slike a maggot but in a vegetable) from a brocolli.

  13. The veges needed to be washed thoroughly! but if it accidentally went into the cooking,then you got an extra protein!! lol

  14. Wow so tiny little snail...!

  15. Dear Wenn,

    I'm so sorry for my late visit. Hope you have a wonderful week :). I'm right behind Jama's comment. Wash thoroughly to avoid extra protein ;)

  16. This prove the vege is safe from pesticide. Hehe. Can eat safely. I think wildlife is hard to keep at home.

  17. It's relatively safer when there are little creatures residing there..

    ReplyDelete
  18. I guess it means that the vege is safe from pesticides.

    I've encountered having caterpilar in my vege from my economy rice stall *yucks*

  19. i soak my vege with a teaspoon of salt each time.. seen that before.. they will just disappear into the sinkhole...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Then must really clean the vege before cook..

    ReplyDelete
  21. if the sawi is good enough for the snail to eat and survive, must be good enough for me to eat! :D

  22. I have seen insects in spinach many times, so I'm a bit skeptic about buying fresh spinach..

    ReplyDelete
  23. Eugene said it correctly, it's comforting to know that it is not covered with pesticides. :)

  24. I had an experience with cabbage! OMG, when I open it, I freak out!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I once saw this in a cabbage and i put it beside my sink but it died subsequently.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Good! You now know that this veggie is safe to eat. Otherwise, those things will not survive.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Must really wash thoroughly. Snail? Eww...never come across before..yucks.

  28. I found a little cocoon in fresh corn, it wasn't near the ear of corn, so still good to eat.

  30. Hi Wenn, gosh, imagine that being part of the menu, ha ha, Lee.

  31. Ack...I once found "something" in a bunch of brocoli, I couldn't eat brocoli for a long time! I wash vegetables very, very thoroughly but suppose a little "bug" can sneak by.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
