Around the farm these past few days, the baby toads are hopping. They’re pretty much all heading south–to the Vermillion River? Or just to find a good place to burrow down in the moist soil and eat bugs?
We’ve had to be mindful of our feet, as they’re just about everywhere, and I am putting off mowing for a bit until they settle in. I would love for a few of them to stick around and eat some of the grasshoppers that are also quite numerous, and I don’t want to scare them off or run them down.
Unfortunately, they are also all over University Road–so go slow if you take that route, and give them a little extra time to hop out of the way!
