I showed my grandson where an old blackbird nest is. Today I found a second nest hidden away under a bench.
With all the rain we've had over the past couple of years, the acidity levels in the soil have crept up. Vegetables grow better and absorb nutrients from the soil a bit better when there is a bit of lime in the soil. Agricultural lime was added today. (face mask as the stuff is caustic)
The soil will be tilled more finely in a few days.
