I was reading a farm magazine article the other day. Hard to believe, but it said a group of just 30 Starlings can devour up to 2 tons of silage/grains per month!!!!!!
wow. That's a lot of damage.
Think the pie pan tied on a string might help keep crows away? Along with a few shot gun blast?

Squash, Zucchini and cucumbers
how to keep a 2.5 year old busy. You dig a hole for them to play in.
Should be picking squash this week.

Are those Marigolds beside the tomatoes to keep the bugs away?
Some what but it gave the 2 year old some thing to do. She helped mommy plant them while we got everything else planted.

So after cutting on the tree till almost dark, I worked until 10pm staking down all the tomatoes so they would stand back up.
Should be picking squash this week. Getting some big green maters too.

Picked more squash, the first zuchinni and 2 cucumbers saturday. Will need to pick stuff again. broccoli is starting to make crowns, hope it handles the heat ok.
With the heat & humidity, they will be steamed right in the garden! Cucumbers love the heat....ours are turning them out. Teresa has a double batch of pickles soaking.
