I live in beautiful Lancaster Co., PA in the heart of Amish country! I am 60 now. Phila. I love my little birds here which I feed w/ 3 feeders out, and a lovely cement bird bath, which some of you have read about! I have a nice little vgarden which I have only had to water 3xs myself so far this summer because of all the rain here! I started most of my veg, plants by seed excepting the tomatoes and 4 of the pepper plants. I also have some more baby pepper plants to go in that I did start from seed. I plan to do more fall vegetables this year again, such as gourds & pumpkins, acorn squash. Good luck everyone w/ their gardens this upcoming growing season!
