The French Gardener and I have been busy this past week taking care of a few garden details
Building more bird feeders and spots for the Robins to nest
Interesting enough the Robins will go hungry rather than eat seeds
So we took strawberries, cranberries, nuts, dried fruit, prunes and raisins and made the Robins a smorgasbord
We used some of our firewood to build their shelters
We bagged up a little feed and sent it over to Victoria's (daughter) so her Robins get feed
Oh I almost forgot to mention the water has been warming up in the pond by one degree a day and soon we will start to feed the Gold Fish and Coi. The temp is 45 degrees and you shouldn't start feeding with a low protein fish food until the water temp reaches 50 for two weeks. Then we will go to normal feeding high protein when the water temp reaches 65.
The gardens are looking so abandon right now, yes the snow is almost gone but we have had rain and yucky weather so I've not got a chance to get out there and putter around yet. I have plenty to do with this head cold that I've been nursing for a week now and I've been under the weather. I'm hoping by the time the sun shines I'll be back in the saddle and ready to get at the gardening clean up.
For now - Tylenol and throat soothing lozenges
