Digging after the rain & the return of the FROG

All that rain we had in the last few days has done me a favour!  The sun came out today and I went out to the Allotment to dig!!  It was like putting a hot knife through butter & I had the added bonus of a little harvest of baby sweetcorn and some beetroot!




To add to my delight of digging over a large bit of my plot I found my friend the frog!  He was hiding in a compost bag.  Now this was unknown to me at the time and I tipped the little amount of compost left in the bag onto the plot and out came this frog who was covered in compost dust - he did look a sight, so I got my watering can and gave him a shower.  He then rewarded my by posing for some photos....

Hi Ali, do you think your frog might be a toad ?? it looks a little ugly for a frog !( I can't usually tell the difference, but it looks a bit warty!) it's great to have had all that rain isn't it ? I'm gradually covering all my beds for the winter. I love it come spring when I take off the plastic and there isn't a weed in sight. The weather forecast seems better over the week-end, so I hope to dig up the remaining dahlia tubers on the allotment and cut down the globe artichokes.

What's his name then? I hope you gave him a good chat about how good slugs are for him and how he is welcome to any that he finds on the plot!!! xxx
