Here's a picture of my garden. Please don't notice the shed missing its door, and the snow blower. I wonder how long the snow blower will sit there?
Anyhow, my garden is not large at all. It used to be about 3 times this size until 2 years ago when I decided that I didn't want a garden anymore. My oldest was graduating from high school and we were having the yard landscaped. It just seemed easier to me to get rid of the garden all together and just put in grass. And then the landscaper guy made this for me. So while I can't grow a bunch of stuff, I can still technically say I have a garden.
Today, I planted a few tomato plants, and some basil plants too. Its still a bit cold at night so I'm a little nervous about it, but I'm taking a chance.
Peas. They aren't growing very well. I planted them back in March.
I took this picture Saturday, and posted it on Facebook. I was contacted by about 3 people telling me to get those brown eggs out of the nest. Apparently, those are Brown-Headed Cow Bird eggs. The Cow Bird will lay its eggs in another bird's nest and let the other mama bird raise and care for its young. The thing is, the Cow Bird eggs will hatch first, and then eat the Robin eggs, leaving no Robins for the mama Robin to raise. So I
made an omelet got rid of the eggs. And boy, did I feel guilty!
So today, I went to check on the nest just because I'm nosy, and this is what I saw:
A baby Robin! Its so ugly, its cute! Poor baby...
So, my tiny backyard garden is on its way. Next on the garden agenda: plan and plant a 1000 sq. ft. garden that I'll be renting. Any hints and suggestions are welcome!
