growing in the garden

When we went down to the garden today to see if we’d successfully grown any sweet potatoes, we discovered we’d managed to grow a pair of red back salamanders.

The one with the red stripe is hiding, but this leadback one woke right up when we shifted the bag of peat they were dozing under. (According to Wikipedia, they start hibernating around 50 degrees, which has been the high temperature recently.)

@Jenn: I know! When we first moved the peat bag, I thought I’d unearthed some of the millipedes we occasionally grow. It wasn’t until Rudi noticed them that he recognized them for what they were!
