Attracting Frogs to the Garden

Frogs can be a great Organic Benefit to one’s garden. They eat pests, that otherwise put a dent into the garden and our comfort (Mosquitoes). With eating 10,000 pests in one Summer (Flies, earwigs, grasshoppers, pillbugs, cutworms, cuke beetles, AND MORE!) … I’d like to keep a few around! How we’ve attracted them…
First, this spot has attracted this feller (Or couple) for the last few years:
Our Split Rail. Cool, to watch him climb the fencing to get here:

This one was a project that our Handy Man made. 
Hollow Log- Ours has natural holes (Bottom/Right Photo), so the frogs can get in and out. Staple Plastic to top, allowing to dip down some.
flowerfroghouse2 Poke a FEW pinholes to help drain water. Add in Dirt. Plant Flowers (I did some blue variety and Marigolds- So, it will fill in nicely soon.). Place in shaded, cooler, area. I do in the back along trees of garden. When the kiddos find frogs, they just add them into the garden. A few have stayed, and made it a home! Plus, the Flower Frog House looks great in the garden!

Notes: Be sure the fertilizer and other garden additives are SAFE for these froggers. They are sensitive. Be sure to handle with care, wet hands! We also have a shallow birdbath nearby.

EASY DIY Plant Tower

Plant Crate Tower

I love saving money! I love getting many uses of things. This is a Crate Tower… You’ve seen those wonderful plant towers, strawberry hanging towers (The Topsy Turvy types) … Well, here’s one with crates.
2-3 Crates. Line with Weed Paper. Optional: Make holes bigger or use larger holed crates, etc. Fill with good dirt. Razor some holes. Plant FLOWERS, STRAWBERRIES, or BOTH!, Etc.  It will fill in nicely! Will even cover the crates,  looking like a Beautiful Flower Tower!  This will, also, protect strawberries from the diseases they get from the ground!

Note: I wouldn’t stack too high, unless you have a metal pole through center and into ground for support. Also, WATERING. Take a PVC that will fit through crate holes. Cap off bottom. Drill holes. Fill with water. (Or intertwine drip hose). ENDLESS OPTIONS!
