today's garden visitor

My husband was outside this morning digging up some mint we found in a flower bed, that our house's previous owners had planted. He moved it into some containers, so it'll stop invading everything out there. Now we can hopefully manage to keep it growing, without it taking everything over!

So, while he was gardening, a not-so-little friend sat on the border of the flower bed and watched him as he worked. S/he's one giant toad!!

In other "green" news, we signed up for the One Local Summer challenge. Virginia over at the fun New Hampshire blog Living the Local Life is the coordinator for our area. We'll be posting on our blog every Sunday, starting this week, about a meal that we make during the week with local ingredients. Looking forward to learning about what the other participants make for local meals, and to sharing our ideas too!

That's great that you'll be doing the local food thing this summer too! I hope to learn a lot from you guys. (I'm not totally committing to the challenge....but I'm interested!)

Love the toad. We have one that hangs around near our garage and seems to get bigger year after year.

As my son says, "toads are cool." I think he's exactly right!!
