House Finches and Kitchen Garden~~

The House finches decided within a day of me putting up the hanging Fuchsia, to move in, build a nest and raise 4 babies in it.
Mama Finch doesn't mind me watering the Fuchsia. Am very careful to water around them...and the nest is high enough they don't get wet.

 Kitchen garden as finished as it is going to be for now.  Still need stone caps on some of the Beds.

Super heavy rain storm caused some issues with the stone dust... but a ditch dug along the front should keep that from happening again.

Needed to put some bird netting up around the Kitchen garden.. and added a cheap little gate. Keeps the Chickens and Nari out.

Have ...

3 types of Heirloom tomatoes
2 bell peppers, different colors
2 Thai Dragon peppers... for Asian dishes (Since this state doesn't seem to do Asian)
4 Artichokes
4 cucumber plants
Some WallaWalla Onion starts... though heaven knows if they are the real thing.
Basil, Rosemary, thyme.... plus a couple of flowers to help keep the bugs away.
Not a big garden this year but it is a start.
