Margy got a new hummingbird feeder for us! I put it up today, plus our old one too, attached to opposite sides of the beams on our new roof on the deck. I hope we aren’t too late to catch the migration–we used to put out the feeders when the viburnum near our door (in North Yarmouth) started blossoming, the first week of May. We’re still figuring out the best timing for here in Portland. I’ll let you know when we see any.
In the meantime, lots of watering to do, and I also divided some comfrey and some oregano to take to the Plant Swap tomorrow at the Resilience Hub. Last year we got all of the companion plants we needed for our cherry trees. The comfrey and oregano seem like basically fool-proof plants, and grew abundantly in the food forest. So I was confident enough to take some out to share. This year, I hope to find some kale seedlings, perhaps, and just see what might be there. Maybe elderberry starts? It has been a beautiful day in the garden.
