The Book of Six© Six ways to tell a nature lover by opening their fridge/pantry

Oh sure, it’s easy to spot a nature lover from their garden, but would be able to tell from their fridge or pantry?

Tiger and verbena

Here’s what you will see:

  • Large jar of grape jelly for the butterfly feeders
  • Large jar of peanut butter for the squirrel feeders
  • Mealworms in a bag next to the cokes
  • Frozen blacked bananas for the butterflies
  • Egg shells for nesting birds (for added calcium)
  • Fresh made hummingbird nectar 1 part sugar, 4 parts water

Here’s another three:

  • Cheap beer for butterflies to mud in
  • Safflower seed
  • Suet cakes

Have you hugged your wildlife today?

    Yup, you’d probably know we are wildlife lovers. One thing to add. A plastic container full of worms for hubby’s fishing. Does that count?:)

  2. What do you do with your frozen black bananas – I have a shelf full in my freezer and how do you keep the yellowjacket swarm away?

  3. Tina, you are too funny. No I didn’t count my husbands blue tub of worms so you can’t count that either. I didn’t count the squid either! H.

  4. Kathy, On the occasion bananas go bad, we throw them in the freezer for later use. The butterflies love the mushy mess. Haven’t had problems with the yellow jackets, but the mush isn’t put where we are likely to interfere. H.

    P.S. the peel goes into the compost pile or in the around a rose bush if I think of it.

    My family just LOVES the mealworms in the fridge! Don’t forget the suet cakes in the freezer.
