Another Update About Nothing
Tomatoes are still growing and we seem to have chased the deer away but we don't have many because they kind of had to start growing all over again.
The monster meat birds are still in the pen. They were my major task for this vacation. Maybe I will do a few tomorrow or Thursday or, heck, maybe this weekend but I do know I need to get going on that (we are almost out of chicken!).
I have two pens of quail now and several eggs in the incubator. I will likely be culling male quail as soon as I can tell which are the males in the second pen.
We have another snake. I know he is there because he left me 4 dead birds this morning. Three chicks in the outdoor brooder and one black tailed white Japanese bantam hen which he tried to eat and couldn't; you can always tell by the slime on the head of the bird. I am glad he was not big enough to eat it but it scares me that he was big enough to think he could eat it. I spread the "Snake Stop" powder but if I find the snake, you'll know because I will have a picture of him without his head. I have been out to check on the birds several times today but Mr. Snake hasn't stuck his head out yet.
That is really all that is going on here. Don't give up on that pine needle basket, it is on my "agenda" for this week too (ok, stop laughing!) along with the yogurt that I have to make tomorrow and a few other things.
