What a great article, Geoff!

When I see toads, I celebrate because they eat slugs. They can give you a start though, ugly as they are and appearing out of nowhere. Same with snakes, although I think snakes bring out more primal reactions. Any garden takes lots of work, don’t let the veggie gardeners get all the praise. It’s no great shake to grow lettuce. Voles are owl food which is admirable because owls are cool.
