Remember these? Birds or no birds, I had to cut them down!
But I didn't want the seeds to go to waste. Armed with my trusty kitchen shears, I harvested the heads. It was such a beautiful day I was just happy to have an excuse to play outside.
Got a whole quart! Shook the rest out onto the grass.
As you can see, Dottie helped. See how glossy her coat is? The vet says that comes from her eating the bird seed that falls to the ground. Its loaded with Omega 3's.
Once these seeds are dry, I hope to put them in the bird feeder. Worst case: I toss them out on top of the snow this winter. Either way, they won't go to waste. :)
