Last night when I was out locking up the chickens for the night, I saw this Gulf Coast toad trying to break into the new bean patch. I have the raised garden bed that the beans are planted in wrapped with bird netting to discourage the raccoons, armadillo, cats, chickens, and dogs from making a mess of the newly planted bed. It seems to be giving the toads fits, too! When the plants get a little bigger, I'll lift the netting so the toads can enjoy bug snacks in the bean patch.
We have lots of these toads on the farm. There are a few that gather under the pole light at night at the top of the driveway. They're REALLY fat -- good eattin' under the pole light that attracts all those bugs at night.
