Toad in Transplants

Filed under: Beets,Gardening,Peppers,Vegetables,Wildlife — marysveggiegarden @ 7:53 am

Last night, 10PM, I was bringing my transplants inside.  It was very dry, but rain was in the forecast, and I didn’t want them flooded overnight. Here’s what I found:

Toad in Pepper Seedlings

This big fella is sitting in my tray of Carmen pepper seedlings. Maybe he’s keeping his belly cool and damp. I prodded him a bit and he moved away. One pepper was bent, but it was flexible enough that it wasn’t broken.

This morning I put the plants back outside. But first I checked the single tray that was outside overnight. There he was.  It rained all night, but he’s still hiding in my plants.

Toad with Transplants

The plants are:
– beets lower left
– dianthus next to toad

Yesterday was the first time we’ve seen toads this year. I spotted a second toad in the garden.
