The amazing but underappreciated toad

Earlier this season, as we worked on prepping and planting, we were curious about all the small holes we saw in the ground around the vegetable garden.

Then it occurred to me one day when I saw several toads about that these were toad holes! And, now 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 time.
