    Ok, boomer. I bet that joke was funny in 1956. You are old and faded. Wife never told or asked me to fix the quail problem so pipe down. But getoutsides bird netting is a helluva lot easier than chicken wire huh? Thanks GO, bought some today. May not work but time invested is minimal.

    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    Basil growers...a question...

    When harvesting, cut whole branches, just above a leaf, or go from bottom, picking off small leaves?

    ^ I take bigger leaves so the plant sends its energy to the small ones and plant growth.

    Having bird problems? Get some 1/16” stainless cable (cheap on eBay), string it over the garden about 7’ up, and hang bird reflectors on it (cheap on Amazon). Poof, birds gone. They apparently hate the dancing sun reflections. We’ve been doing this for a few years; the only things we still have to net are the fruit trees.

    Old CD's and DVD's hanging from a bit of twine works too. But silhouettes wouldn't look as trashy for sure.

    We take the top leaves off, right above the smaller leaves underneath them.

    I got 99 gardening problems but a bird ain't one!

    Fly Captive: That would be logical, yes. We definitely want birds in the garden, so we are trying netting just over a couple beds. If we lose lettuce, so be it. It's been like an aviary this year, anyone else notice a huge uptick in their backyard? Even found these guys last week, weird colored mallard-mom.

    I want to say that isn't a mallard but I'm unable to identify the breed. I thought maybe a Buff Orpington but not really.

    Over the last couple of years we've had 9 huge trees come down and I can't get a big chipper into the yard so I keep cutting them up and building raised beds with them. I fill them with top quality soil, usually organic, from local farms and grow most of the plants from seed in our sunroom.

    There is a variety of greens, onions and herbs in this one with melons and raspberries in the upper section.

    Potatoes in boxes I built. The front is hinged so I can open it and pull potatoes while the plants are still growing and producing.

    I just finished the last 2 beds this morning and have corn going into one and all sorts of greens and more melons going into the other. There's also a hulking rack that will be holding a half dozen hanging tomato and strawberry bags. There are 3 of those potato boxes with 11 plants in total of 4 different varieties so we should have more potatoes than we can eat. There is 5 kinds of lettuce, 6 kinds of onions, 3 kinds of melons... all sortsa yummy stuff. My favorite thing about all of this is I didn't buy a thing other than some starter trays, seed, dirt and fertilizer, everything is upcycled and recycled from materials around our property.

    I want to say it's not a mallard too but the ducklings look like mallards, so that's my uneducated guess until someone sets me straight.

    Gravity lover, nice set up

    Hmm, Buff Orpington is a chicken. I don't know much about ducks, but I do know that ain't a chicken.

    No there's a duck too but as you can see from this pic the bill is the wrong color.

    Should have turned them into BTU's instead, particularly in the northeast where home heating oil use is still widespread.
