Rodent Trap Modifications, Roof Repairs, Picking Vegetables and Making Soup

Dragging butt

I was up late last night so I got a late start today and was dragging my butt a bit. :O)

Rodent trap modifications

I made some modifications on my mouse, rat trap. I replaced the wooden ramps up to the bucket with some plastic pipe as I feel the wood had places for them to cling to as it entered the bucket but the plastic pipe doesn’t. I also replaced the wooden part that turned when they got on it to plastic for the same reason to make it slipperier. I will still use one of the wooden ramps to get up to that short pipe and the longer pipe can be set on something. If this works I might get longer pipes later but that’s all I have on hand for now.trap


Working on getting some cams up in the attic

I set the trap back up in the attic. I plan to put a web cam up in the attic hooked to my computer so I can watch things and it will record on motion so I can watch how and if this works out.

Working on another design

I also made some plans to make another one similar, but works different which I will construct once I round up enough stuff to make it.

Garage roof repair

My old garage’s roof has a piece of metal that’s been flapping when the wind blows hard so today I got up there and put some new screws in that piece of metal. That makes it ready for winter.roof


Gathering vegetables for soup

I finished off my big pot of vegetable soup for lunch so I gathered some more vegetables to make another pot tonight.

Here;s some big beef steak tomatoes that I’m going to pick for the soup.tomatoes


I also picked a couple of zucchinis and cucumbers for that soup.   vegees


Need go get broccoli

Which reminds me I need to go over to my brother’s garden and get some broccoli before it gets too dark, so off I go now.

Cut up vegetables and made soup

I got some and returned and cut up the vegetables and loaded the big pot up with them for soup and it’s on now. In two hours I’ll have a nice pot of soup.

Forgot barley again

Forgot to get some barley for it again, can’t seem to remember that when I’m at the store, but the soup doesn’t really need any as it’s good the way it is.

Rodent trap

Here’s my rodent trap up in the attic before I modified it.rodents


I haven’t caught any yet, but I will. :O)

That was my day.
