Stretching Out

The seeds are certainly taking off now!

Though we think these peas need to be moved elsewhere until we can get them in the ground at this point…



Bird Watching

With all the snow still on the ground we heard that birds were starting to starve.

Sadly, as the snow melted we did find two dead birds.

On the next grocery run though we picked up a bird feeder, which was immediately appreciated by the locals.

Meanwhile, the cats have appreciated being able to watch our visitors…

Anybody who has bird watching cats can probably hear the sound Big Red is making as Redflare took this picture.


Trash Pickup

Redflare called the trash pickup company once the snow melted and she had a chance to actually watch what they were (and weren’t) doing but between then and this picture every trash pickup day there would be quite a bit of stuff floating around the neighborhood.

On one such occasion sweet little Newbie picked up an offending item in each hand and walked it home after school to be properly disposed of.


More Growth

With winter still raging on outside yet it being after Easter it was time to start some more plants since the tomatoes for the most part were doing so well.

A few flowers…

Some celery (yes, that’s an old muffin tin).


And bush beans.

It’s been really neat watching them grow.


Nibbled Tomatoes

Speaking of hungry animals… for some reason Thundercat really likes to graze it seems. The tomatoes from the picture on the 6th had grown enough that Redflare moved them to a bigger pot.

Where they were nibbled on mercilessly.

They’ll be growing under a dome for the rest of the duration that they’re inside, that’s for sure.
