Feeding the birds in winter

Image
 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.

SOILNADOSHARK Results, in case you were curious.

November is coming, Fall is fleeting

 We've been busy trying to get pallets situated so that we can get the pallet shed started, along with raised beds, fences, and a few other pallet wood projects. I would really  love a greenhouse made of pallets, but I have my eyes on a high tunnel that is about to go to a lower price.  Isn't it weird that just as people need green houses, retailers put them on sale because they are considered "garden" items instead of realizing that's where they'd profit most? I'm grateful for seasonal merchandising.  The video below was recorded shortly after we tried the pallet buster (Ed made a video on it). It is not heavily edited.  I am looking forward to meeting some of you in the next few months!

 00:35  Herkese merhaba. Ben Ernie Hatmaker'ım. 00:39  Bu da onlardan biri... gidip video mu koyuyorsun yoksa biraz iş mi yapıyorsun? 00:45  Bu yüzden gördüklerinizden hoşlanırsanız, bana bildirin. 00:50  Ve eğer yapmazsan, kendine sakla. 00:54  Yani kesinlikle farklı bir şey,  00:59  bu sera, 01:02  biraz küçük olan, 01:05  Bize tanımadığımız biri tarafından gönderildi. 01:12  Ed üzerinde çalışıyordu. 01:14  Döşeme için birkaç finişer koyduk 01:18  ve altında çuval bezimiz var. 01:21  Bu, yabani otları bizim için yeterince uzun süre öldürecek 01:23  PVC boruyu ya da bir kayayı ya da başka bir şeyi yere koy drenajı devam ettirin. 01:32  Ve elbette biliyorsun çatlaklar olacak kaldırım taşlarında. 01:34  Eh, umarım kaldırımlarda değil ama finişerlerin çevresinde drenaj da meydana gelebilir. 01:41  Bunu gördüysen, 01:43  o bir sinekte swatting bendim. 01:46  Her neyse, um, 01:48  İçinde yürümek için bir yapı gibi 01:51  ve onu biraz rüzgara karşı sabitledi. 01:54  Şimdi sera plastiğim

The onion bowl

 These onions are a wee bit old, so I surely hope that they grow in this raised bed soil. They aren't the only onions I'm growing from bulbs. In a few days, I'll show the inground garden where I have a plot of onions.
