The fostering of *Brownie*

This is the little munchkin we tried to help. Hubby found him stranded after a storm and decided to bring him home. Kids named him brownie :) He was probably a week old when he got to us. 

A day later after feeding on softened cat food with a syringe. Go figure, bird eating cat food! 
 Getting stronger and full of feathers, a week later!
 Flying everywhere!
All set and ready to venture out in its natural habitat!
We miss you Brownie! I hope you are safe and enjoying the outdoors. It would be nice if you visit us, you know..

Hydroponic Farm: Strawberry Picking

We took the kids Strawberry picking and this time we headed to a Hydroponic Farm. It was a pretty unique experience! Hydroponics is a form of Agriculture where plants are grown without the use of Soil.  Instead, it used Mineral Nutrient in Water alone or in an inert medium, such as perlite, gravel, pebbles, coconut husk etc.
