My two favorite creatures in the summer are hummingbirds and fireflies. I have loved both since I was a little girl. The first thing I did when my husband and I moved into our first apartment was by a hummingbird feeder. We lived in California at the time, and I had multiple hummingbirds feeding at a time for most of the year.
For years now, I have been making this easy homemade hummingbird food recipe, and it is great for attracting hummingbirds.
Most store-bought hummingbird food is red, and if you scroll through the ingredients, about 90% of it is dye and preservatives. Hummingbirds don’t need either one.
You can also purchase organic hummingbird food that just contains sugar and water, which is perfect! But, it is pricey.
The solution is to make this homemade hummingbird food at home anytime.
