I avoided cutting the grass towards the shed, round the raised beds and near the pond so I wouldn't disturb the frogs. The entire pond is heaving with them at them moment. When you walk up to it the surface quakes and moves as frogs scatter to avoid detection.
Something has been pulling the frog spawn out of the pond. Our next door neighbours have seen a young badger in their garden. Could this be the culprit?
The rhubarb is growing taller and is nearly ready for picking. It will soon be time for the first rhubarb crumble of the year.
Also growing happily in their pots are the lupins, placed there last year to try and keep the slugs and snails from destroying them before they had a chance to flower.
