Was discussing frogs with an e-friend into natural foods, and how they are a farmer's "canary" as to whether or not there are chemicals in the water.

I am wondering if those of you that switched to permie farming have noticed an increase of frogs near your farm?

We didn't switch, but we do "officially" manage for amphibians on our place (Wildlife Management tax status). Even though we did not have any permanent water here, we had a bunch of frogs and toads.  Now we have more since I've been putting in various small ponds and tanks of water.

We've identified these so far:

Leopard Frog
Cricket Frog
Gray Tree Frog
Green Tree Frog
Narrow Mouthed Toad
Gulf Coast Toad

We know it can't be very polluted here with all these guys, so it gives us comfort.

 
The glass is neither half full or half empty. It is too big. But this tiny ad is just right:
