A bit of rain today
The rain started a couple hours before I got up this morning and it was raining hard so no rush getting up.
So with everything all wet and more showers coming I went back in the house for another cup of coffee.
Exploring mines the easy and safe way
Late last night I was watching stuff on YouTube and discovered this guy going through old closed mines and found it interesting as I’ve always had an interest in mines.
Soooooooooooo, I explored old mines in Nevada and Arizona most of the day on and off.
Here’s the address of a real good mine explorer if you like old mines as I do.
Checking out the yard
I went outside in the evening to walk around the yard for a look see.
Lots of plums
I have a large crop of plums on the trees this year which causes the limbs to be heavy and droop and sometimes break off. With the rains and the heavy crop of plums I expected a lot of the tree branches to break off. To my surprise the branches were drooping but they hadn’t broken off.
Towards dark I went in to shut the chickens in for the night.
To prevent them having a family I take all their eggs each day and each night put each one on the roost to hopefully break them being broody. I do that every night and so far it’s been about 5 nights without much success.
Checking the incubator
I don’t need broody hens as I have 56 eggs I’m trying to hatch out in this automatic egg incubator. I check the temperature and the humidity. It says the humidity is 50 percent and the temp is 38 degrees C. on day 12. The eggs will turn automatically in ten minutes. Much easier than doing it by hand every few hours.
That was it for a restful easy day. Back to the mines.
