While doing some extreme digging (the second level down is almost complete!) I unearthed a dozen turtle eggs and re-buried them out of harm’s (my) way. Since the soil was dry, I watered it a little after re-burying them. I hope they’ll still hatch from their new location.
I try to tell myself that I’m making it better for future turtles – the area around the pond will soon be much softer garden soil instead of compacted, weedy lawn. But I still feel guilty.
