It was another tentative weather night, yet we still came to the garden, knowing that we had work to do…and we got to do some Birding at Troy Gardens with Trish. The birds don’t seem to stay home when it rains. In fact, they seem to relish the increase of worms and bugs.

We still needed to get our tomatoes secured, so John and Andy worked at using the post pounder to get the tomato cages anchored in place. Now, the tomatoes can grow and ramble as they will.

Tom is starting a garden project in Stoughton, so he came by tonight to see what we are up to at Gardening for Good. Hope he harvested some fresh ideas.

After garden chores, we headed over to the outdoor kitchen, where Trish gave us some new and fun things to think about with birds. She talked about how cowbirds are able to lay eggs in other birds nests, and lay them in nests where the cowbirds and unwilling host’s eggs are similar. One more reason to find the cowbird fascinating, clever, and a buttinsky.

Trish brought a bag of meal worms for us to look at, and taste if we chose. Crunchy and not too flavorful.
