The Garden and Good intentions

With what had been going on I am way behind on our garden. “Our” means that I plant it, weed it, harvest it, cook it and “we” eat it (giggles). But anyway, I’m way behind, Baby Robin (2)I hadn’t planted anything except a few onions my daughter gave me left over from her garden. She has 6 week old twins; four kids under 4 and she is done with her garden weeks before me! But her husband also has an interest in the garden other than eating (hint,hint).  Ok, so I’m really way behind and yesterday I committed to put everything else aside and get my garden planted. I had all my plants, I just needed to get them in the ground. I was hopeful I could finish it all in one afternoon. Well that was before I heard a commotion and saw baby robins flying- hopping everywhere!  We knew there was a nest under the deck, but apparently our dog Chia spooked them and they all jumped out of their nest. Not the smartest move on their part. Fortunately Chia didn’t chase them but they were scattered all over the yard.

So instead of planting I was sneaking up behind little fluffy baby birds and scooping them up and putting them back in their nest. The first was easy, but the others hopped around a bit before I was able to get them and the parents we not at all happy with me. At first it was just the Robins that we swooping over my head. But by the third baby rescue I had cow birds and sparrows all gunning after me! I am happy to report that I managed to catch them all and put them all back in their nest. As for my garden there is always tomorrow!
