paperwhitesWhen Should Our Bat House Be Up? or Purple Martin House? or our Bluebird Nest Box? Every year I hear these questions. After responding to these individual questions and thinking about this, I noticed two easy reminders for folk in our central Texas region.

For baseball devotees, the answer is: When pitchers and catchers report to spring training!

For lovers, the answer is: Valentine’s Day!

These “memory hooks” will work for when should you be sure that next boxes are cleaned out and ready to be used, too. These dates are not the best answer for hummingbird feeders, but it won’t hurt. You may waste some sugar water.
