I needed some chicken feed and my supplier went out of business so I had to find some place else. Because of my corn thing I do not feed them the processed feed as most of it has corn in it. That means I have to feed them some kinds of seed.
New feed store
This all meant I had to drive further because most feed suppliers do not supply seed as it takes more people to get it into your rig which I suspect is the problem. Fortunately a guy loads the stuff as some of the bags are 80 pounds at this place.
I learned I should turn my car around like that truck to help the guy loading it so I did. I had quite a load in the car when I left.
Next I was off to Costco to do some shopping and then over to a hardware store where they were out of the things I needed. I especially wanted some manual water timers but with the drought on around here no one had any. I went to home Depot and Wal-Mart and no luck, so I tried online when I got home and ordered up five but they said they will be delayed and let me know which is ok as I don’t need them that bad but in my older age I tend to forget and not turn things off when I should, sometimes.
I was going to go to the Cheese Factory but it was 5:30 and I figured they’d be closed and I was ready for home anyway.
I made it home and it was time for a nap before unloading the feed so nap I did.
Unloading those heavy bags
After that I needed a break so sat in my chair. Something seemed wrong with my order but I wasn’t sure what as these where all new type bags to me but something wasn’t right.
Getting closer and what’s wrong
Anyway I eventually got up and moved the bags closer to the shed getting them ready to put in the shed, but first I got out the sales tag to try to figure out what I had. I finally determined that they’d given me an extra bag of rolled barley. Hummm, I’ll have to pay them for it when I go there next time.
And of course it was break time again, in the house for a short nap.
Once I got it going again I went outside to do some fertilizing with the stuff I bought today as my blueberry bushes just don’t seem to be growing much, likely because the woodchips sucking out the nitrogen.
It was getting dark so I went in the house for the day.
