Here For Their Amusement



This lump of straw started out as a tidy half bale, sitting out ready to cover the next planting.



I didn't realize in reality that it's main purpose was actually a bird jungle gym and smorgasbord. What great fun they've had all day rooting through the straw searching for oat seeds.



Saint Tim repaired the washed out garden and everyone is looking good. Chard and kale, broccoli, cabbage, sweet onions, potatoes and now the squash and zucchini has successfully transitioned out of the greenhouse. Tonight I'm moving the cucumbers out and planting some sweet corn.



The greenhouse is starting to look empty.



"That's okay. Me and Eli are ready to move back in."

I'm so glad that your garden was rescued. The plant looks none the worse for wear. The picture of Eli with the Iris is card worthy :-)

Too cold, especially this weekend, to plant outside yet. I did give my tomatoes a outside visiting last week...too much for a few of them, but hey, that's the way it goes...
