birds

Hi, birds don't mind what quality your feeders are only that they are kept clean. It is really important to regularly wash them with hot soapy water in order for disease not to build up on them which can cause diseases to spread between birds and across species.

Offer different types of seed and see what comes in - whole sunflower seeds or sunflower hearts are popular with a large range of birds. Peanuts behind mesh (baby birds can choke on whole peanuts) will also bring in different birds - I get woodpeckers on mine.

By offering food in different ways you will also increase the types of birds in your garden  - hanging feeders; bird table; scattering food, scraps, fruit on the ground.

In winter or when the weather is cooler - grated cheese and  fat balls are two other things to try.

Unfortunately the photo does not enlarge when I click on it and the original is too small for me to see the plant in detail.

 

Weed or boarder plant

The plant twining itself around the stem is convolulus - weed which strangles other plants and is hard to kill !!

Can't id the other one ( I'm sure someone else will) but it looks like a weed too.

Mystery plant growing among strawberries

Hi, it looks like marjoram. Rub the leaves and see if there is a smell. Great herb and pollinaters love it.

Pumpkin Magic

I would be inclined not to stake it but let it travel over the ground. It will take up alot of room but your pumpkins will be well supported on the ground and you can place straw underneath as they grow to keep them clean.
