Poor Country Boy Gardening

Poor country boy gardening is when you want or need something for your garden and can't afford it. So you get creative on how to get it trading or bartering for it. digging it up out of an empty field or off the side of the road or a neighbors yard.

high as you can get it on a shade side to keep the light and heat down attract them with fruit like oranges or something tacked to the out side cut one in half stick it on a nail. the fruit will attract and grow gnats and fruit fly's around the box the bats will be attracted to eat.

Toads are better and less sensitive than frogs frogs need water usually lots of it and are more temperature sensitive they also are more mobile and roam. Toads stay put don't need a water source much wider temperature range.
