So as you can see, the mudhole is basically done. Had I not dug the post-holes yesterday, it’d be completely dry this morning.
I went down with a bucket and sieve to retrieve what I could out of the post-holes. I clearly did not completely clear the holes, but collected another couple hundred. Scoop in, dump out sludge and tadpoles. Scoop in, dump out sludge and tadpoles. Scoop in, dump out sludge and tadpoles and what the heck was that?
Oh – as can be seen from “tadpole rescue not” – a baby turtle came along for the ride.
Okay. so finish scooping holes. There are still tadpoles in there – so be it. I stick my hand in each hole and fish around for other turtles. Don’t find any. What to do? Guess I’ll stick him in Colony Two – even if he eats tadpoles, there’s far more than he can eat in a day.
Good thing we want those toads for the garden and bug control LOL, and clearly my hubby is just having some fun with this as well, but wow, the baby turtle was a surprise, I know a great turtle pond just a ways from our place that we can release him back into.
