The ducks have a new yard, my future tomato and bean garden. 12.22.17
Randy, I used to see an owl once in a while when I lived in a small community. Skunks too.
I can't eat raw kale. Boiled is an improvement, but still, not all that good. I've done kale chips, too. Not a big fan. And never a smoothie. I hate smoothies!
Chard is my fave, collards a close second.
Good photos, Daniel. I'd love to visit your place. Too bad we live so far apart.
After a month of absolutely no rain, we've had 3 consecutive mornings of a half inch each day. NOW I can dig my sweet potatoes. Hopefully the voles haven't done too much damage.
Such great pictures guys!
Temperature here got down to 27 F this morning.
Thanks Daniel. I wish I had access to try duck eggs.
I have found frozen chopped kale added to my soups & stews tastes really good.
Well, I guess the "garden" photo excluded kale and potatoes. The two little trees to the left are Mandarin apricots. Daniel, I did take a photo of a persimmon and pear tree, but I deleted it.
I figure I have over 10 cords of wood--enough for at least 2 years, maybe 3.
Joan, good luck with your big move. Keep in touch.
Here are a few photos: oak tree in the distance, taken from my garden (Brussels sprouts, chard, sweet potatoes, kale); my wood shed filled to capacity and then some (raspberry patch and grape vine pole in foreground); a great horned owl sitting on a "fence"--blurry photo taken through a window.
I am closing down the greenhouse, putting the tools and supplies in the shed and getting ready to spend six months with Craig's family in Littleton, Colorado.
I like it here now that I am used to the greens of the forest. The bird species population has increased considerably from last year, Mourning doves, chickadees, several species of finches, the turkeys, and the usual sparrows visit the bird feeding station regularly. Sometimes the deer come to eat, and on occasion, there is a pile of bird seed that I spill, and they clean up. I saw a chipmunk under the hanging feeders this morning.
I had hoped to garden in the raised beds in the meadow outside my window, but my old body just does not have the energy it used to have. I empty the kitchen compost with Dominic every morning, putter for a while in the greenhouse and am done for the day.
Sweetgums?? How do you put up with the thorny seed pods, Daniel? I suppose they decompose eventually.
Over 38 years ago, I planted a pin oak tree taken from a local woods. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect it to look like it now does. I may run out and take a picture of it to post. Stay tuned! So Spud, go for it!
Daniel, your dog looks like he enjoyed staring into the fire like I do. What's he really doing?
