South Jordan A Garden:

If you walk quietly and carefully through the pea patch, you may find the big toad that lives in our pea patch!  He is camouflaged. He is not a small little frog, he's much bigger than a frog. It was fun to find him today!  Don't bother him.  Don't try and catch him. Don't take him home with you.  Just let him enjoy living in our small pea plantation!  I wish I had my camera today but he was hard to spot even when I was looking directly at him!  You won't hardly see him until he moves.   

West Jordan A Garden

While planting tomatoes this morning, TWO garden snakes slithered by a few rows away from me.  These are harmless snakes but in the 4 years I've been gardening all over the Salt Lake valley, I've never run into ANY snakes OR toads and today it all happened on the same morning!!!  WAY cool!!
