A Little Surprise in My Garden

Sometimes it can be tough to see what’s going on underneath all those zucchini plant leaves, but my husband and I recently discovered the Quail family that has taken up residence in our squash patch.  I have netting around all of our garden beds to keep the birds out…go figure.  I had to lift up the netting on this one so she doesn’t get tangled up.

I’ll be watching for when they hatch and maybe I can get some photos of that as well.  At any rate, it should be interesting trying to harvest squash with newly hatched birds hanging around…lol.

Here are a couple pics.


Beautiful speckled eggs


Notice that lovely zucchini in the background

My dog Kito is very curious
