Garden spoils

It was a perfect morning for gardening today, relatively cool and cloudy, and Barbara and I took full advantage. We pulled up the entire beet bed, sowed more lettuce, cilantro, chard, chives, and carrots. Harvested more beans, some zucchini, cucumbers and jalapenos.

While harvesting the beets, we found this large toad, whom I have made the official garden guardian. Last summer when I found hundreds of toadlets from our "lake", I deposited a number of them in the garden and apparently they like it there: bugs.
