The plum trees have a ton of little plumlets growing. I’m going to have to come up with a way to keep the deer away, as they are used to feasting freely on these little gems.
My garden is finally growing. I have peas and beans and corn up as well. The soil isn’t great. I’m going to have to till in some manure in the fall. But for this year, I’ll have to be happy with what I get. Which won’t be much, but at least my skills are slowly improving. My skills with a hoe that is. My weeding is done mostly by hoe. I chop down the rows beside my baby vegtables and upturn all the weeds. Then I’ll go back later and pull the weeds popping up right in amongst the veggies. I also use the hoe to hill the potatoes up. It’s hard on my back at the moment, but I think I just need to get used to it.
Gimme giving me the orange eyeball. Wondering where the worm is. LOL She’s a bit of a glutton when it comes to wriggly worms. I’m reducing the amount of chicken feed they get, and encouraging them to eat the grass, and other nomnoms I bring in for them.
This chicken kept going for my butt as I sat in a white plastic chair. LOL She looks a little mean.
Gimme lets me pet her now. She assumes this funny position of neck and butt sticking out and wings hunched up. Their feathers are very soft, and they’re nice to pet. I don’t know if she will ever get “cuddly”, but I like being able to touch her now.
Summer is here, and the kids are done school. So I’ll be creating a routine of work in the morning and then free play in the afternoon. I hope it works! We have to lay in wood for the winter, grow the garden, horse poop removal, and lots of little cleanups and fixups to get done. Not to mention my crafting and Art & Craft Sale.
