Frogs in Tomatoes

Post  jazzycat on 5/12/2013, 11:32 pm

So last night, we discovered the tree frogs hide in the tomato plants and sing. It was hysterical. And you know, they will start singing, and then all stop, simultaneously. Very Happy

Two on the trellis, one in the container...

Hmmmm. From the first picture, looks like more than singing going on! Great photos, you're to be commended for (1) beautiful tomato plants, and (2) good photography. Nonna

Nonna, I agree. It does appear something "else" is going on besides singing. Twisted Evil

My mate took the photos, so I can't take credit for that, but I did grow the tomatoes, so thanks! What a Face

We started building the other beds today (for cukes, melons and peppers, etc.), and found an earthworm which I promptly placed in the tomato bed. I hope he likes it there. Very Happy I just hope I have as much luck with other veggies as I've had with the tomatoes. My plants all have many baby tomatoes on them now. It's amazing, and so much fun watching them grow. Fascinating. flower
