It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain
It smells divine around here these days! Our one lone apple tree is blossoming like crazy!
I have been working my arse off on my garden. Hubs helped me make 9 more beds and they are all in place. I’m still working on filling each one, but we do have a couple grapes planted, new raspberries which were my grandfathers (thank you Mom!) and a strawberry patch in the works.
This is Henny and she is a bad bird but we love her just the same! She is on the deck, in my planter. She was so busy aerating it for me she never knew I had walked up to see what was going on!
When I spoke, asking her if she belonged in my planter I think she knew she was caught because she hightailed it off the deck. But lucky for us she left her calling card…
And sadly we are down to 3 ducks. Over the weekend we lost our 3 Black Swedish to a mink. We found where he had been working on getting in, and most importantly Hubs found him. Hubs fed him to the chickens. I made the comment on my facebook page that if it was really hungry and had to eat I would be more okay with it than I am right now. He only killed one, and left the other two just hanging on for sport I guess. Poor Hubs had to put them down.
This is farm life it seems. Life and death. It just makes me so mad we get them grown up, where we really enjoy them, and then lose them.
