Chop Wood Carry Water Plant Seeds is a blog about Self-Sufficient Homesteading. How can we live by creating a sustainable bio-diverse world, instead of by consuming and destroying the only one we have? What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?
The Spring has come and much is to be done! Birds are a very important part of the Soil Food Web even though they themselves are not living in the soil but they do balance the parasites which take birth in the soil or tree bark.
Placing bird houses around the property will encourage birds to build nests there. This will help alot to keep pest insects at bay.
Old nests is thrown out so the bird house is clean and empty, ready for the next bird family to move in :)
