Randy, that celebration sounds like a one not-to-miss. Aren't you proud!? I hope things are going better for them and that they can recover from all the storm damage to their crops and equipment.

That would be fun to watch Thomas.

   Chickens are crazy for meal-worms. When I had a compost going my barred rock chickens discovered mealworms in the pile. Since then every morning when I let the chicken out to free roam they race and fly to the compost pile. Their digging antics are like cats to catnip.

I'm not familiar with mealworms, but Wikipedia says they're the larval stage of the mealworm beetle.  They feed on vegetation, dead insects, and can eat polystyrene.

Aren't meal worms anything more than fly maggots?

Friday, Aug 11, the whole family is going to the Indiana State Fair to be presented a sesquicentennial (150) Hoosier Homestead Award. I guess it's sort of a big deal. I'm excited about attending. Our farm began in 1864 with Wm. Silverthorn. (silverthorn-farm.com).

Plinius, how's your garden doing?  It's been a long time since you're mentioned it.

Kathy, I have been wanting to grow some meal worms for the bird population that is growing near the bird feeding station in the Fir tree just outside my window. Thank you! I will try the technique

To the chicken owners and bird lovers:

I accidentally learned how to make meal worms for them. When the chicken feed got soaked during the last rains I emptied the wet mess into a quart plastic strawberry container. I was intending to throw it in the trash but sat it on a worktable near the henhouse and forgot it. After about ten days of high temps I picked it up to carry it to the trash I saw meal worms wiggling through the ventilation slots. Hundreds of them. The chickens love them and so do wild birds. I've made them twice more.

It is difficult for me to imagine not having legalized Cannabis,

Joan, I'm with you on the medical care. I call McConnell and Ryan at least twice a week about their plans to destroy our healthcare system. And I write them more than that. There have never been two more greedy senators in this state to my knowledge. At least not at the same time.
Good news Shrilly has been found guilty. He's the creep who upped the price seven thousand percent on the AIDS drug. I know that isn't his name but it suits him. Price gouging wasn't the charges but, hey, whatever works : )
