April has been an interesting month! We found a nest of tiny baby rats who had made a peaceful home in our worm composter, eating many of the worms and all of the compost garbage before they were discovered and removed.
An amazing stick insect also moved into the peas. Unfortunately, when we found it, it was dead. We speculate that it may have been unable to move in the cold weather that came in. It hung so still that a pea tendril had time to wrap itself around the insect’s legs. And then it was stuck!
