:Hi Rainbow,
It sounds like you're doing everything right so far! I'm in Central Cal. and my turtle stays outside year round.She only burrows down a few inches under the soil and then I pile some leaves on top of her for the winter.
Mine just came up recently, but she has also burrowed under a day or 2, and yesterday she never came out of her hide spot.
As for defecating, mine usually does it in her water, too. And fairly soon after she's eaten.
Best of luck to you and your new turtle
Sharon
