Fall field friend

The CSA and markets are done here at Hunts Brook, but it's still busy at the farm. We're in full on clean-up mode. While moving sandbags (which hold down the row covers in the field), we came across this Northern Redback Salamander. I may have squealed upon its discovery, as well as a cluster of several more under damp leaves and debris. They're super cute, especially their webbed feet!
