Our homemade bird feeder attracted ZERO birds. Isn't that SAD?! Yeah, we thought so, too. So the Farmer headed out to buy some real bird feeders (3 to be exact) and brought them home for Sweet P to put together. THOSE have attracted a lot of birds and some annoying squirrels (we are NOT fans of squirrels around here). I've mentioned before that we live near a cemetery with LOTS of trees so squirrels are EVERYWHERE! And did you know that squirrels will eat just about anything?! I've seen them eat sunflowers, tomatoes, birdseed (including suet) and acorns (of course). Needless to say they wreak havoc on our home garden in the summer. But enough about squirrels.
It was such a nice day that we had a picnic outside and then the Farmer came home to help us fill the bird feeders.
