I woke up that way this morning so instead of going down to Jenner to watch for spawning fish coming into the river staying home was a better choice.
Fertilizing fruit trees
In order to keep from expending too much energy I decided to do some fertilizing of some of my fruit trees which is mostly just setting things up to do it.
Putting the chickens to work
I went in and had a nap to let the fertilizer thing work.
Using the drips
Having the leak actually helps me out to get some fertilizer on stuff that’s out of the way and won’t get the hose injector.
Sitting in the raspberry patch
Doris came up and just had to scratch between my feet. She lays colored eggs and is one of my best layers.
Eventually Sweet Pea jumped up on my knee. She started doing that when she was little.
Teaches me something
While she was sitting on my knee she suddenly turned to watch something the chickens were doing that I would of missed. So I watched her watch the flock and she taught me I was missing a lot the flock was doing as I was missing things only the chickens knew.
I have a lot of young roosters just maturing and starting to make a lot of noise so I will soon have to butcher some of them to keep things under control and get some meat to consume.
Shutting down the day
Just before dark I shut all the sprinklers down for the day and checked out what I still needed to fertilize. A bit more chair hopping and it was getting dark so I shut the chickens in and went in the house for the day.
Nice lazy day.
