I almost stepped on him when I went out to close up the chicken coop a few nights ago. Then, this morning, he’s in the watering can on the back porch. Toad lives in the garden but lately he’s been coming up on the porch. He’s obviously too big for the chickens and cats to lunch on and is making himself at home.
Now that Jon and I are realizing toad is here to stay, as a permanent resident at Bedlam Farm, he or she, (I can’t tell the difference when it comes to toads) will need a name. Jon was thinking George, but I’m partial to Eleanor. Actually this is one of those things that we could use some help with. So if you have a good name for our new toad, let us know.
