Cheap labor in the garden...

When you are trying to germinate Angel Trumpets from seed, it is important to have a full-time sentry around to make sure insects, snails and slugs are kept at bay.  I was fortunate to be able to solicit the help of this small tree frog to watch over my recent batch of community pots.

This synergistic relationship is a win-win for both parties!
