It has been an exceptionally warm and dry summer this year so instead of perpetual watering, I have allowed the veggie-beds’ soil to “bake” itself and hopefully kill some destructive nematodes.
But yesterday it rained … actually it poured!
By sunset, it brought out the bugs and the bug guzzlers (whom I treasure). I have found frog-watching to be a fascinating pastime.
Has anyone spent time just watching how these carnivorous amphibious pest controllers work?
