    Hellooooo class. Guess what? I'm an uncle! That's right, the Phoebe family chicks hatched!

     

    It can take up to two weeks for the eggs to hatch, and two weeks came and went and we kept our ears peeled for the little chirp chirps of baby birds. Well, we never heard any and we started to get worried.

     

    We couldn’t see what was going on, because the door the nest is on top of is much taller than any of us. Then Moo-Cow got the excellent idea to climb up a ladder and hold a mirror above the nest so we all could see into it. That's when we finally caught our first glimpses of the babies all quiet and curled up at the bottom! They were so silent and motionless we were still worried about them, but Moo-Cow could see them breathing very lightly.

    It turns out that Phoebe chicks actually don’t make much noise, or move very much, unless mom or dad is bringing them food. That's why we didn't hear them when they were born. It takes 16-18 days for the birds to learn how to fly, so we'll still have them around for a little while.

     

    Meanwhile, I've been learning other things about phoebes, like they have a unique habit of twitching their tails up and down. Some birds bob their heads up and down, but you can always tell a phoebe by its "wagging" tail.

     

    Phoebes also like to eat bugs, like I do. Actually, Mrs. Phoebe and I both went for a delicious looking mosquito yesterday but then I remembered she had some new babies to feed, so I let her have it.

     

    The Phoebes will hang around here in the northeast until late fall when they fly south for the winter. I've liked having them around, but I will be glad to not share my bugs with them anymore! I think I'll go over to the nest and see how my new nephews are doing. Class dismissed!

    A rare appearance by a baby Phoebe in its first week out of the egg. Mostly they've stayed tucked down at the bottom. Maybe they are starting to get curious about all these weird creatures hanging around their nest with mirrors and cameras.

    One of the main things you need when staring a new garden is good soil. Most people think dirt is just dirt, but an experienced gardener knows that good dirt is essential to a healthy garden. Good dirt is the true black gold!

    hoeing-with-kiweenie.jpg


    Sometimes the land you are planting on might have some good rich soil, but the area I’m starting my little shade garden is pretty dry and sandy. That means I'm going to need to add a good base of healthy soil.

    My favorite type of soil is compost. When people find out what compost is for the first time, they’re usually a little grossed out. That's because compost is what some people might consider rotting garbage.


    Well, it may seem that way, but that’s not exactly correct. Compost is a mix of brown matter, such as leaves you rake up, or grass clippings, and green matter, like carrot tops, garlic peels, apple cores and the skin of onions. Any sort of vegetable matter can be composted. Even things that don't resemble their original plant anymore, like coffee grounds and tealeaves.

    Some of the sweet dirt from our compost pile!


    We have a compost bin in our yard where we throw in all of our veggie scraps. As the pile begins to break down, it heats up. The heat is good, it means your pile is “cooking” and turning into dirt. I like to turn the pile with a pitchfork every few days to get more oxygen into the pile, and to mix it up. It's just a matter of weeks before the vegetable matter breaks down into dark, healthy soil.


    Another great soil type I like to use is manure. For those of you who thought compost was gross you might not want to know what manure is. It’s poop! It is usually cow poop, but other animal poop works well too (like goats, or even bunnies). Animal poop is full of nutrients that plants need. Have you ever seen how green the grass is at Moo-Cow’s pasture? Well that’s thanks
    to his natural fertilizing abilities!

    Here is the shade garden area filled with dark rich compost. Doesn't it look nice?

    See you next time when we will give some shade loving plants a new home in this great soil.

He just draws all the boring stuff, and he doesn't even show it right. I've decided to do my own Diary Comic Journal and let you lucky people in on the TOTALLY TRUE life of Ramses. You're gonna be jealous, but you'll also be entertained. You thing your ready for the excitement? Well, here you go!

     

     

    First I had to figure out how to capture how handsome I am!
