I was about to put some weed suppressing membrane down over the bare soil inside my newly installed greenhouse and came across some tiny frogs/toads. All were a dark brown colour, blended perfectly with the soil and no more than an inch in length.
Since the greenhouse is raised on a 4 inch platform all the way around I am at a lose to imagine something so tiny jumping in whilst the door was left open so can only conclude that they burrow under and in. Would that be a possibility?
I also laid chipped bark around the back and sides of the greenhouse as a temporary path around the structure. Might this have been where these creatures came from?
I worry that the poor wee things won't be able to get out or find food. I know nothing about these critters and may of course be over reacting. I'd hate to be responsible for their demise!
