A mockingbird is nesting here.
This guy is welcome too. Do you see him? We welcome everything that eats bugs. I wish squirrels ate bugs. Some of them are the size of cats around here.
Farmchick mentioned straw bale gardening. I saw a video and an article about it on FB and my head is just going crazy with excitement over this technique! How cool would it be, not to have to bend over, weed, or fertilize and have a great crop? If you have tried it and liked it, please feel free to write a post of your own in the comment section. I'm too cheap to buy a book on this so I want to know how to "prepare" the bale. How much, how long, and when is it ready to plant? You got your assignment?
Good, please teach.
