After spending 2 hours trying to get the ice out of my garden hose water started flowing and a lot of birds came to drink eater. I was supprised to see so many birds and they acted like they were not afraid of me they landed only 4 feet from me to get water. After that I put out some sunflower seeds for the birds but so far the only thing the birds want is the water. I put a bucket of water out and now there is a continious stream of birds coming to the water. Interesting.
My carrots, beets and greens are doing fine in this cold weather it has been down to 9 deg F and below freezing for over a week during the day. High has typically been 21 to 27 degrees for a week. Several of my herbs are doing fine too.
