Haha. Nope, they all have slits on the bottom for drainage. Can't hold anything liquid in there.

Looking good. We seem to have similar weather and temps for being so distant from one another. My lawn seems to be about two to three weeks behind coming out of dormancy. I’ve planted lettuce and it is doing well. Taking a chance and will buy plants this week to plant. We usually have to wait to Memorial Day, but I’ll give it a go.

Quick update:

First: 7 days in a row without rain. Last time this happened was August 2018! Welcome to Southern New England where weather patterns are always changing.

There are 2 famous sayings around here... "We need the rain" & "It's always raining".


Perfect, Beautiful Spring weather with dewpoints in the 30s and 40s mostly. So its been nice and dry with no humidity and temps only in the 60s and 70s. PERCECT for me and cool weather crops.

Radishes are coming up. I plant these next to the cucumbers since they help deter beetles.




Fava Beans doing well





Check out the root ball of the Bachloer buttons. Finally getting around to planting the flowers I started. I wont bore you will all pictures until they actually bloom





Mixing grass clippings with garden soil.





See anything???????? A special treat. (arrow on pic is actually above where it is)





How about now Cardinals Nest. This is going to be fun to watch.

Typical, only thing missing is a beer in one wing and a remote control in the other.

Warmest soil temp of the year this morning. 68.1°. Cucumber and Pumpkin seeds waking up. At 80°+ soil temps cucumbers go crazy with growth. We're about 4 weeks from getting that soil temp. Will have garden update this weekend

So nothing has happened since she built the nest. I was careful not to go near there. Last time I seen/heard her was 5 days ago. No eggs. No sight. No sound of them. I do hear them singing but in the distance. Not sure if its the same ones.

No idea what happened.

Sometimes I think they build multiple nests and have 1 as a decoy. I did see a Blue Jay get close and the father chasing it away. Sucks. First time actually having a Cardinal nest so close or even knowing where a nest is.
