Grandpa told us a time when he was a child and the Italian Army was camped outside of town by a huge lake FULL of frogs. There were so many frogs, they could be heard in the city center. When the Italians left a few weeks later, not one frog was left

I was wondering about that in Oklahoma.

My garden is raging, but it's on high raised beds.

Very swampy on the flats.

In fact my swales filled up this year, and stayed wet.

They're supposed to drain within 2-3 days so they don't breed mosquitos.

Yah mosquitoes could be bad this year, west nile summer

Jhikpghf

I filled in the swales. Sort of.

Usually it's not this wet, and the water seeps into the berm before mosquitos can breed, on the dry days.

This year it's stayed soaked, so the ground is well saturated, which is what I want.

But I don't want standing water, so I threw mulch in there. When the dry weather hits, I'm gonna scoop that back out and add it on top of the berms.

If I had more space, I'd connect my swales to a pond, and fish could eat the mosquito larvae.

I put a goldfish in my rain barrel for that and it worked.

Until a bird ate it.

lol

I have a couple of small ponds with lotus and water lillies. I got a few mosquito fish and they do the trick, multiplying like mad so I don't have a mosquito problem.

My swales are only 6" deep, so except for this extra-wet spring, it's not a problem.

I would make them deeper, but I went off the advice of a local permaculture guru, and designed them to dry out quick.

I'm using them for three purposes.

1)It's hugel culture. My berms are wood with dirt on top. Had to get the dirt somewhere.

2)I put mulch in there after I dig it, so it gets wet and decomposes faster, so I can have more stuff to put on top every year. Soil thickness started at 3", now it's 6-9 (and deeper because the wood is decomposing too) because I keep adding stuff on top of the wood.

3)To hold water when it rains so it seeps into the berm slowly.

Basically I didn't put enough grass clippings in last fall after I dug it, so it had standing water and I had to add leaves this spring.

Which is too bad, I would have added mowed/shredded leaves last fall instead but I wasn't expecting this.

I heard frogs yesterday. I just planted my spring vegetables, and rain is forecast until the middle of next week.

I'll start my peppers and tomatoes indoors.

Heard on the radio that the fields from Michigan to Iowa were not even plowed yet. Miles and miles of nothing as of yet. This was the 13 of May.

They better hurry I don't think they can get crop insurance if they don't plant by end of May.

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

Well, it looks like someone decided to exploit the coming shortages
by investing in the futures.
Corn is up 10% in a week.
That'd be like the stock market going up 2500 points
on the DOW in a week.
