    Gardening 2019

    Now that everything has settled after the move, I can start digging in the dirt again.
    Container gardening is still my favorite way to grow stuff.

    And I found a wren's nest in one of my plants. Momma bird got a little annoyed, but she came right back.

    Aww, excellent! Most people since my move here to Vermont know me as Wren, which was my nickname when I was a little, chatty round child!

    That's a great nickname. Wrens are my favorite birds in the garden.

    The first harvest of the season. I have lots of tomatoes as well, but they have yet to turn red.

    Today, I found a praying mantis on one of my plants. I'm always happy to see them as they prey on garden pests.
