We have eight large feeders (30 & 42-ounce) and use over 50 pounds of sugar a month to make syrup for the little Hummers( June 2007 we used 65 pounds of sugar, just for the hummers.) 2009 this year we gave up feeding the Humming Birds do to our health problems. We grow lots of our vegetables which I can & freeze.
