garden toad


I think this is why the slug damage isn’t so bad in my garden any more. Toads eat lots of bugs, slugs and snails. This big guy has been hanging out under my squash vines.

  • I counted at least five of them, when moving some concrete slats around the other day. Another one seems to be living in the compost bin. Didn't stop the slugs from eating all my basil though.

  • I've only seen one frog in my garden, and it was a baby.


  • I so wish toads and frogs would visit my garden .. can I rent your little guy for a while please ? cheap rates I hope ? LOL
    Seriously … I could really use that natural help !

  • What a handsome fella! I have them in my foundation plantings but none seemed to like my veggie garden this year. I am thinking a toad house may be in my future.

  • I love you site. I enjoy checking in frequently to see how things are going. Thanks for sharing your experiences, beautiful garden, and your humor! I recently started gardening again and found your site. Thanks for sharing with us! I love Skippy as much as your garden! My own dog is also my garden companion. He enjoys lounging about while I tend to my plants and he offers little criticism of what I may be doing wrong. Thanks again, Kathy for sharing your bountiful gardens and your gardening experience.
    Best wishes, CathyKK Massachusetts

  • Yes CathyKK, Nothing like a dog for having very little criticism of my gardening. A great buddy!

  • BTW, This is the first toad I've seen in my gardens. I feel very lucky. But I don't know how one attracts them. He's also the biggest toad I've ever seen. Maybe 4 inches long or so.

  • As I was weeding yesterday, I found one living under my overgrown Chinese cabbage. I almost didn't want to pull up the cabbage for fear of removing his hiding spot, but that fear didn't last. He soon found his shelter under my cuke vines and squash.

  • I'm jealous!
