Watching nature is rewarding, I keep a small bowl by the garden, and every now and then put table scraps in it.. I put a trail camera over it and watch who comes for dinner.. Its good to know whats in the garden..

I love to watch the birds too. We had a killdeer successfully hatch out four eggs a couple weeks ago and my little eleven year old neighbor who fishes in my pond informed me that there is another one nesting close to our pond.

Yesterday I was getting ready to cook dinner outside at the summer kitchen and one of the pecan trees seemed to explode. A hawk took out from the tree and captured a large Eurasian dove eating underneath the bird feeder. All that's left is a pile of feathers now :o

Pulled about fifty or sixty onions that the tops laid over on them. Most were really nice with a few smaller ones mixed in. The majority of them were Texas Legends. Only a few yellow granex and southern bell reds were ready. I laid them out on the ground and let the tops cover the bulbs. There was really low humidity today so hopefully they will do some serious drying. I'll move them onto a table under the patio tomorrow ahead of the rain we should be receiving on Saturday.

The low tonight (April 19)  was supposed to be 40 , but as the evening darkened the weather radio said we could have scattered frost... I  just staked my tomatoes so could not put my bucket /tubs on them. Praying for no frost on them.. I think I have about 60 plants .. Very windy too so maybe it will continue throughout the night and keep the frost away from mine and yours too.

Since I am unable to be out and about any more I have become a bird watcher, watching the blue birds that built a nest in one of our blue bird boxes we placed near the carport.  I have gazed out the window watching them go in any out the house for over a month,  The chicks must have now hatched as they are continually going in and out and only staying in the house for a moment or two.  Welcome to life-feeding our family.  We do not disturb them.  As I sit on the couch looking out the window, the wife has ALLOWED me to tie two of the blinds together so I can see better.  Wonder how long that will last.

Looking out the bedroom window onto the porch is one of the wife's flower pots that also has a nest in it.  They are more visible and I have attached a picture below of the 5 mouths waiting to be fed.

Enjoy nature!!

Ben
