To his legions of readers, Gene Logsdon is best known as the Contrary Farmer. This is Logsdon's ode to the watery microcosms all around, from the half-acre farm pond to the suburban garden pool. Readers looking for hands-on experience will find plenty of pond-keeping do's and don'ts.This summer a distraught garden-pool owner called to say that she was witnessing a plague of toads. She didna#39;t mind particularly, but the neighbors were complaining about the number of toads their lawn- mowers were mangling. ... But of course, humans often insist that their lawns look like a rug, and not a shag rug either.
