What better way to herald Earth Day than in the garden. The sun IS peeking in and out, but night temps are still dipping down into the 30's here, so our seed starts are happening inside, under a grow lite. Peas were planted in the ground though and should be OK. If the blue-jays don't find them first.
Herb garden is looking good. However, I spy a few things that shouldn't be there. Things that hopped over from nearby flower beds. I sprayed the roses and a few other "at risk" flowers with the *magic concoction* (deer repellent). In case you don't know, this is earth friendly and can be mixed up in your kitchen. Here's the link to the original recipe if you want to check it out. I'm still having great success with it.
Oh, and the wren house has been hung and already had a few lookers (English sparrows), but no takers. It's in a location we can easily view from the kitchen sink. We keep watching and waiting for the wrens to return. Which, should be soon. At one point yesterday, we looked up to see about a hundred Canadian geese in loose formations heading north. They were up so high we could just barely hear them honking as they passed overhead. We watched them as they disappeared in the distance, thinking about their incredible stamina and perseverance. It always amazes me. What a marvelous planet we live on.
