I would like to stock our area with frogs and toads. Has anyone purchased stocking populations before? Any ideas on where to get frogs and toads for shipping?

The most prolific product to come from my hugelkultur year after year is snakes. Since we put in our Hill we breed snakes by the hundreds.

This vid inspired me to share my experience.

Yes I agree. But all I was told is that it's not being made anymore. Can you tell us a little more than just that?

I want a saw mill too. Is there info in the forums about the mill you are using here? Thanks, tt.

movie notes: if your feeling sad today, watch this.

good 'ol farmers give no till / cover crops a try and they find this:

-increased soil moisture, less power to pumps
-natural weed control, less chems
-decreased soil temp from the highs, other crops were burning out
-more vigor in plants, due to root reach, due to more ambient moisture
-increase soil nutrient level, result less chems bigger yields
-richer soil drains better then the strata sheeting of water they get from till and disturb.

conclusion: one feller at the end said after 6yrs he has not hit a production increase plateau and he doesn't know if there is a plateau!

to hear the words of permaculture come out of the mouths of hardened chem farmers made me VERY happy
Ladybugs: This last week we spotted a caterpillar web nest on our Satsuma Plum tree. Well we don't spray and it was up to me to get out and remove that nest. A day pasted. Then another day. Three days later I finally get out to remove the nest and it is covered in ladybugs enjoying a caterpillar meal. Problem solved.
