....are hummingbird population in decline as well?
I think it was Daniel who mentioned this a several months ago about killing off weeds.
Is the safest way to do this is putting plastic over an area to till for vegetable garden or flower bed? Is clear or black plastic used and for how long?
It is 30°F at 9:17 AM and expect a high of 33° with seven days of snow predicted as of the last forecast. I am itching to start seeds in the laundry room. We had one and a half inches of fresh snow yesterday and all that dirty snow has a bright new top layer. The fir trees have a snifter of snow on their branches. A beautiful sight with the sun shining through mostly cloudy skies.
Randy, it sounds like your robins don't care for your grapes, but you have more of other animals that eat a lot of your food.
Randy, just before reading your post, I was going to ask a question about Robins. Do you have grapes, and do robins or other birds eat many of them? Same question to everyone. I know Daniel has grapes for one.
When I lived 30 miles south of here, I had some grapes, but there were also a lot of Robins, and they ate 100% of the grapes long before they were ripe enough for me to eat. I moved before I got around to trying netting over them.
While I live about 200 miles north of Kathy, I, too, have a lot of green shoots popping up. It's nice having chives this early. I'm just afraid my fruit trees will blossom too early and be wiped out by a freeze--the last date being in May. We'll just have to wait and see.
I just love watching two male robins hopping on the lawn in tandem, eyeing each other, ready for battle. Where one goes, the other follows--hilarious!
