Early this morning I put my camera down someplace in the yard and couldn’t find it until late in the day when I went on the hunt for it before it got dark. I do this quite often but I usually fine it sooner.
I did find it right where I left it, on the wood stove.
Things are growing
Anyway with spring and the warm rains the weeds and the blackberry vines are growing quite well.
The chickens can take care of the weeds but they don’t like the blackberry vines so I’ve been on a crusade this year trying to reduce the number of them in the yard.
I did a little work on the van and cleaned up some of the mess I made while working on it.
Carrots are shot
This is one of my brother’s carrot patches and it shows what happens when a virus hits and closes stuff down. The farmers are left with a loss. These are turning to seed and are now real woody type carrots. No good.
This is my number two rooster. I have two roosters in case one isn’t doing his job. I only need a rooster to fertilize the eggs for hatching otherwise a rooster is not needed, although they help keep the flock together as a unit.
That’s because these five hens have gone broody and want to hatch out some eggs so they hang in the nest boxes all the time. They’d stay there all night if I didn’t remove each one after dark and put them on the roost to try and break them of being broody.
I had a pretty easy day chair hopping and puttering around the yard.
