Success!

All the singing going on every night as paid off. Pacific tree frog eggs are in the pond. There are several clusters along plant stems just underwater. The darker green area, in the photo, is the reflection of the leaf above the water. There are five or maybe six frogs in the little garden pond. I was starting to worry that they were all males, by the amount of singing going on!

Garden Supervisors

I had an audience today while I did a refresh to the garden bed around the pond. I think they are both Pacific Tree Frogs. But check out their differences, below...


We've been able to see the big guy on the right from the house window...Especially when he starts croaking like he is here in the photo. He's usually on the log floating in the pond.

Here is the link to their baby pictures.

Lead Tomato of 2010

Here's the only baby tomato that sprouted so far. I think I need to move to round two with the seeds. The peas were also being stubborn. Brought them in to the house, from the garage and now several more have sprouted. I hope to keep them safe from my indoor garden pest... and then get the peas in the garden very soon.
