    1. One year we had 40 toads (or was it frogs, I can't remember) in the compost heap and sfill the slugs flourished, Mark. The things are just so prolific.

  3. Aww - we have plenty of frogs around here, but not so much in the lizard department. Apparently there is only one type of lizard - a skink - that lives in Ontario but I've never seen any.

    1. The second animak is a newt, Margaret - an amphibian like the toad and frog. Do you have them? I've never seen a lizard on the plot.

    2. Apparently we do have newts - but just as with the skink, I've never seen one.

    1. We always have plenty of these guys on the plot, Dina. We are always carrying them to places of safety when digging or cutting grass.
