Toads in the Garden

Last year I made a little toad abode out of an old clay pot.

I put it out in the garden and waited.  No toads moved in.  However, a rodent decided it was a great place to store peanut seeds!

This spring not only do I have a toad living in the garden- I have three!  Of course they are not living in the house I made for them.  Instead they are living under a frost blanket I left laying in a path.  I suppose that blanket is going to have to stay.

Hopefully the toads will fill up on squash bugs, Japanese beetles, and all the other pests in the garden!  It sure appears that this toad is eating well.  Perhaps I need to increase the size of the toad abode door!
