Tuesday Yardening

Today is sunny, warm, and breezy.

I fed the birds.  There was a red-winged blackbird preening in the forest garden, probably after washing in the runoff from the sump pump.  I also saw a robin eating something out of the hopper feeder, and mostly shoving out other seeds to get it.  Possibly the peanuts.

Round 1, I planted 2 privets at the edge of the savanna.

Round 2, I put covers over the new privets and mulched them.  I still have 2 left to plant, and then I'll be done with this batch.

EDIT 4/9/19: Round 3, I planted the last 2 privets at the west edge of the south lot, filling in gaps there.  

Round 4, I covered and mulched the last 2 privets.
