An Escargot problem.

My tomato plants are growing quite well and I finally have flowers!

The problem is that someone keeps eating them! I can't be sure it's actually snails. But several google searches lead me to believe they are the most likely culprit. The thought of dealing with them is almost enough to make me just rip out all of the plants. I bought some snail killer, but it's toxic to pets and doesn't seem worth the risk. The thought of putting a bowl of stale beer in my garden and then fishing dead snails out of it doesn't sound particularly bearable to me, although likely not as bad a using a snail stick to impale them one at a time. Anyone know a better way to deal with garden pests???
