Hummingbird nest

Hummingbird nest

It’s spring! Our tomato seedlings are hardening off, we’re waiting on our peppers to grow second leaves and our squash seeds were planted this weekend. Dave and I just spread fresh mulch on the garden. I’m drawing up plans and trying to figure out how to fit everything in.

Meanwhile, at school, I’ve begun a hummingbird study where I’m setting up motion sensitive cameras. The cameras have been a bit difficult (and the one I really need right now is back ordered) but luckily there are dedicated students to help.

Here’s a picture that one of my after school gardening students took of a hummingbird nest yesterday! The babies are being closely watched by our students. I’m working on my camera today and hope to get one up soon.

Aren’t they just the cutest?

(Thanks Natalie for the photo!)

  1. Hooray for hummingbirds! How wonderful to watch a nest. Your students must be delighted by them.

    I’m a Southern California gardening teacher, too. I’m glad to have found you.
