about 20 plus half inch black eggs among low growing weedsin my garden



Welcome to GoY, Nhcoco!
Is there any chance of posting a picture? Or giving us a more detailed description, including if they are attached to the weeds or laying on the ground, if they are random or in patterns, if there is any damage evident on the weeds or surrounding plants, the eggs' texture and exact shade of black, etc.

yes welcome from me too.

1/2" seems very large to me if we are thinking of eggs, wonder if they are a cluster of droppings from a rodent?

a photo would be an excellent help in identifying what they are.

My first thought was mouse droppings. Try squashing one, lol.
