1. Flowers... I had flowers in my yard this year that were white, reminding me a bit of milkweed or something. I have to go do a simple search to find out what it is(there's a white milkweed right?) so I can get to the bottom of that on my own but, I'm already here typing so... white flowers on top... stems are, I guess winged? I don't know how to explain it. They're not round stems... My real question with it is... IF it is a beneficial one, do I leave it up longer? It's in parts of the yard I want to clear and if it's beneficial and I should leave it up for the seed heads or something, I'll do my best to work around it.
2. Rice... the kind from the store... someone had a bag of it on the kitchen floor and it got spilled. I'm wondering if that's something I could(or should) scatter in the yard for the birds? Would the eat that stuff? It's probably white jasmine rice. I'd just hate having it go to waste.
3. Meal moths... anyone have a problem with them? Anything anyone does to prevent them from getting into your feed? I have some sunflower seeds from last season that have a nice collection of meal moth worms in there. I need to start getting things ready for my feeding season and want to try and prevent that a bit better this year. I had the seeds all in a big storage container but I think I stopped putting the lid on it. :( although, I think those things managed to get around that lid even when I used one. I'm thinking that I might be best off not letting feed sit for half a year but, if I stop feeding in the Spring or summer... simply dump all the extra seed I have...
4. Anyone want to come landscape my yard for me? HA. I have lots of dreams of more and more native plants that will feed wildlife throughout the year but, my dreams are bigger than my actions. For now it's just a little here and a little there.
