Toads and snakes in the gardens....

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.

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!!
