He took a long wire and strung it between the two large trees in the backyard. Then attached 2 open feeders to the wire, so far so good! There have been a variety of birds and a few squirrels that have attempted to "walk the wire", but the birds are winning with this one!
yes, I did forget to get my photos last night, so these are 5:00 am photos!
Shredded brown paper bags work great as top mulch for weed control. For stubborn areas, I might lay down several layers of plain newspaper (no glossy inserts) moisten the newspaper then cover the top with the brown shreds and moisten again. If you use a soaker hose, all of this goes over the hose.
Now I just need to get the rhubarb transplanted into a new bed and see if that helps in any way, I was so looking forward to rhubarb pie.........
As always, thanks so much for stopping to visit.
