Solo Cup Garden Day 34

 A couple of disappointing updates to my Solo Cup experiment:  first, the Nasturtium and the Green Ice Lettuce didn't make it through my 3 days away from home. I may or may not restart them; it's definitely my fault for assuming they'd be okay without extra watering since I had the grow lights on a timer. But, it was not to be.

Solo Cup Garden Series Day 25

 So I've been surprised with how well this Solo Cup garden is doing.  There have been maybe 3 gnats that have come and gone, but no thrips or whiteflies to be seen.

Feeding the birds in winter

 I've always been of the mindset to let nature take care of itself and let the strong survive.  But we are in unnatural conditions for the third winter in a row, with temperatures that feel like summertime during the day and winter at night.  The neighborhood birds need help finding food. So I put out lots of mealworms and birdseeds and nuts. There is no editing. Nothing fancy. This was a couple weeks ago, and I'm clearing my camera out. I'd forgotten I recorded this.
