Got grape jelly?

Not me, got the last jar at Walmart. Tried blackberry at twice the price but no way. Berry just lays there til itís a hard gluey Lump.

Just think if every Walmart in the oriole area is out of grape jelly???? How can that be. Festival and Aldi Out. Maybe Kwiktrip for $4 a jar.

FREE GRAPE JELLY!!!

1. They LOVE grape jelly!

We don't get the orioles year round, but when they are passing through in the spring and fall, WOW!

Beautiful thing to see.

2. Yes. I'm up to a jar a day.

Big plastic jars the best.

3. Squeeze bottle

I use the squeeze bottle. Makes filling the feeder much neater.

4. How do you put it out there for them?

I have a suet feeder that looks like a house. Can I put grape jelly on that? How?

5. Mine is on a plate in the raised center of a birdbath.

Every time it rains, the jelly dissolves. It needs a shelter.

My peanut butter is supposed to attract woodpeckers. My squirrel gets to it first, as they often do.

6. They make them

Stokes Select 38200 bird feeder sells on a large internet shopping hole is pretty and is $10.

For me, there is a wooden railing on which I florist clay to the bottom of votive candle holders and stick them to the railing.

Also trdbellied woodpeckers, grosbeaks andhummingbirds like jelly.

7. Try the Jam!

Peanut Butter, grape jam on Toast. My mid morning snack after my pool exercise in the morning.

Smuckers.

9. I have never had any luck with it.

I cut oranges up. I was late this year, I had not seen a one and thought I had missed my chance. I hung out a couple of orange slices on my deck and turned around and they were there. Everyone I have talked to said that the oranges bring them in then the jelly will work. Just my experience. I have so many that I go through 2 entire oranges a day. The Red Bellied Woodpeckers like them too, go figure, I had never seen that before.
