June 17th, 2021



Today is sunny and quite warm.

I fed the birds.  I've seen house finches and a grackle.

My partner Doug raked the mowed patch, so that can be sown whenever the temperature cools off enough.  There's a chance of rain tomorrow.

EDIT 6/17/21 -- I sowed some of the little bluestem grass seed.  It went surprisingly far, so there is most of the bag left to reseed this patch or sow another.  Then I cut 3 spaces for wildflowers.

EDIT 6/17/21 -- I watered the grass seed.

EDIT 6/17/21 -- I planted the 3 spots with tallgrass prairie wildflower seed mix.

As it is now dark, I am done for the night.
