I finally gave my garden a deep watering today. I didn’t bother the past few days as I didn’t have time to water deeply. And our community garden has limited water and it not really worth watering if anyone else is watering. (Next year we are getting a new system! Yippee!)
As I was watering, I discovered my old garden toad from the last two years. He is still here !!! He had dug into the soil under the squashes. As I watered, he moved on to another, likely drier, location.
He’s (she’s?) a really BIG toad.
