Gardening Tip of the Day
Here’s a great way to get the kids involved in feeding wild birds. The recipe is quick and easy.
3 cups oats, 1 cup currants, 1 oz. grated cheese,
1 oz. bird seed, 1/2 lb. of beef fat or margarine.
Hang the feeder close to a window where you will be able to enjoy the birds close-up.
Once you start to feed birds, you must continue to do so on a regular basis. Small birds will come to rely on this source of food. In a really harsh spell of weather, it is the hunger that kills, not the cold.
