This frog pond scheme was something I posted on another topic here on DOW. I should add that most people, if not all, don’t like my pond because it is too shallow for a fish pond not to mention weedy to the max. I would venture a guess that through the eyes a of a frog it is heaven. This summer about every other day I would get a bucket of water for my pumpkins. All the frogs but one would jump into the water as soon as they detected me. But, there was one frog that would stay and watch me as I fetch my bucket of water. At least he or she looked like the same frog.
I’ve been working on this crazy idea of frog ponds. We like our super markets feed by super farms. All the land tends to be read or used as one continues plot. In my area of the world I can not see that. I see dry spots here and there and lookie there is a wet spot.
The plan that I started was to make the wet spots into what I call a frog pond, I have one so far. Yes, frogs and salamanders love this (me to). I have room for one below this first frog pond. So the spillage from pond one would feed pond number two. I also have other places for these frog ponds.
Maybe some trees to slow evaporation and produce leaf compost. This pond grows a lot of water plants and sediment that would be normally lost. The plan is to harvest some of this pond sediment to make my own soil for raised bed gardens. However these water plants can be poisonous to land plants so the pond sediment would need to be composted along with grass, weeds and leaf matter.
