For the past few days while we have been working on the beds, all of the digging has attracted a few robins. One of them in particular has gotten the courage to walk within five feet of me to snatch the freshly exposed worms I throw to him. Today he has been sitting in the Lilac bush, chirping loudly for a worm and then flying off with it to his nest. I have decided to name him Bob. I'm no bird expert and it's entirely possible that he is a she. I also know that Bob isn't very imaginative, but it stuck before we could think of a better one.
It was supposed to be in the high 50's today but the clouds had other ideas. Between the cold, watching Bob, and the discovery that bed #4 consists more of grapefruit sized rocks than dirt, we didn't get very far with digging. On a good note, yesterday Moriah direct seeded the spinach, turnips, carrots, radishes, and a lettuce mix in bed #1.
