Bluebirds

Our last little Bluebird baby flew the coop.  : (

It's kind of sad to open the box and find it empty, except for one little blue egg.  It will be nice not to have anything to worry about though.  We've had so many nests this year in our 5 Bluebird boxes. 

We still have a bunny to worry about, I guess.  He's getting big though. I saw him again tonight.  I wish I knew what he liked to eat (other than tender new sprouted broccoli plants).  

I may plant some pumpkins.  If I get them into the ground now, I may have some for Halloween.  I don't know why, but I just always wanted to grow some of them.  A lot of people around here, use them for yard decorations with a few bales of hay. I had some last year but we didn't get them  planted early enough and they got frost before they got big, or turned orange.  I mentioned it to Al and he said, "knock your self out."  I guess that meant, he wasn't going to plant anything for me. :)

I saw a documentary on growing gigantic pumpkins. It was fascinating.

Al's a riot! Pumpkins make great all decorations around the house. You could even set up a stand and sell the extras you don't want. Just a thought!

Cindy,
Don't you worry about us. We always find plenty of critters to take care of when we travel! One of the reasons we like camping so much is because of all the animals we find. We are like magnets!

I have some pumpkin seeds left from last year, if I can just remember where I put them.

You all should be so proud of all the bluebirds you helped add to their population. They'll be back next year.

Have fun growing those pumpkins!! They look so nice in the fall. :-)
