Lately it seems that everywhere I step in the yard, vegetable garden and perennial beds there is a toad under foot.
They manage to jump out of harm’s way (from a rapidly approaching foot or spade) just in the nick of time. When I notice healthy populations of a good insect, bug or amphibian, I like to think that they are flourishing because of the ecological balance of the farm.
Toads are an indicator species suggesting in their abundance that the environment is healthy; in their absence that it is not.
