|I saw a robin today. Spring is here to stay!
I have a large toad in the compost pile. I haven't seen any "rump prints" anywhere. I felt the same way last year when deer ate my tree lily buds. Sprinkling ground pepper on top of the soil in containers keeps the squirrels from planting oak trees in them. Perhaps something like pepper, cinnamon, neems oil would repel toads without hurting them.
I have babies of Bletila stricata ground orchid from soilsandup. They were sown two years ago! I started them in the pot inside in my old place. I got one sprout the first year but it didn't survive the move, one the second but it didn't survive the second move and three now. I left the pot outside over the winter. I guess they are slow germinating and suitable for winter sowing.
I am jealous that people have tomatoes setting fruit already. the store tomatoes are horrible, even the ones on the vine.
Tomato seedlings surviving a touch of snow? Amazing Joseph. More snow? Yuck.
