Snake!

Remember my post about the ants? That I had taken to potted plants out of the kitchen because they were covered with ants? Below is one of the plants that I removed to outside. Can you see the hole in the dirt? I noticed this when I sat it down outside but didn't really pay much attention to it.
The plant sat outside for a couple of days till a storm front came in. At that time I got my pruners and started trimming up plants and bringing them in before the storm hit. There was possiblity of high winds. When I got around to pruning the leaves on the plant above I found the snakeskin below among the leaves.

Could my plant have had a snake in it in the house?! Now I've even had a pet snake before, but it just kind of creeped me out not knowing if there had been or possibly still was a snake in the bottom of my planter. So, the plant was placed in what I hoped to be a safe place on the porch to wait out the storm. What do you think? Could there have been a snake in my plant?

What a creepy discovery, hope you don't have a snake on the loose inside.

Just viewed your salad pictures, and it looks delicious. I'll have to try it sometime, I love cucumbers.

I've just got to put in a garden next year. I really miss having fresh produce and we don't have a grocery store in town anymore, 17 miles to the closest grocer.
