Gardening Weekend

While the May long weekend represents a lot of things to a lot of people, for us it usually means everything will be planted in the garden.  It's mostly a matter of available time to get it done and timing in our case of the departure of the Golden and White Crowned Sparrows.  They arrive in April and hang around our place for more than 3 weeks usually and our experience is it can be a waste of time planting the early crops while they are here because a flock will descend on the garden and in matter of minutes a newly sprouted row of lettuce or spinach is gone.  Earlier this week most of them suddenly disappeared leaving just the occasional straggler behind.  While we won't have the earliest corn, it usually catches up and we have our share.  Grizzly
