When we moved here there was grass, trees, and little else growing on our property. Over time we have carved gardens out of the grass, stopped using chemicals, and let a few areas go a bit to the wild side.
To make room for the little guys who keep the Farmlet bug and rodent free. Birds, snakes, spiders, and toads all do their job to help me keep the Farmlet a poison free zone.
I think it is working, because I have been seeing a lot of these guys around…
My little friend here is a Fowler’s Toad. It likes to burrow underground when it gets too cold in winter. Apparently, we now have quite a few of these here because we have many little toad holes this spring. I always wondered what came out of those holes.
Now your thoughts may differ, but I find him beautiful.
