Slow Day, But I Did Get Some Yard Work Done

Saturday July 30, 2022 Guerneville CA.

Yard work day

This hen has three peeps left. The rats got three of them before I knew it. I spotted her with her little ones when I went in to feed them this morning. There’s another one you can’t see under her.peeps

 

Slow start

I got a slow start today as I didn’t  sleep too well last night. But eventually I got it going and some yard work needed to be done. The raspberry vines and some blackberry vines are taking over and needed to be trimmed back a bit.

Raspberry vines

I got out the pruners and got ready to trim these raspberry vines back so I could get through there.vines

 

That’s better, they sure grow fast. I’m expecting the second crop of berries soon.pruned

 

Resting up

After that I needed a break so I did some chair hopping and walking around the yard sampling prunes and berries, mostly mulberries as there are lots of them right now. I’ve been watering the tree to make the berries larger and it’s working.

Blueberry patch

The next thing that needed pruning was the blueberry patch. The raspberry vines are taking over along with a few blackberry vines. Of course I ate the strawberries that were ripe.patch

 

Just easier

I just leave the cut vines here to decay as it’s just easier.chopped

 

Cut a path through here

Another break before I started cutting this area back to  make a path through it so I can get into the chicken pen this way.berryvines

 

Chickens totals

Around six, I let the chickens I have left into the front yard. There’s 11 of them here and three more in the hatching pen. Total of 14, that’s the lowest number I’ve had in a long time. Of course I have a few new peeps if they make it. So far I have five and one more hen on eggs.chickens

 

Nice day.
