Our view this morning. Doesn't look much like May 8th. Last year we had black flies and hot weather by now. Hopefully this is the last we will see until December.

Covered our little greenhouse with blankets and towels last night. We have lettuce, radishes, onions and spinach up and growing in our cold-frame.

We also have wildlife. These turkeys don't know that it's hunting season. They should be hiding not wandering our property.

This guy took our chickens last week. Usually foxes hunt at night but in the spring they have new pups to feed and will hunt in the daylight. We usually pen our chickens about 3 o'clock but when I went down at 2:30 to put them in for the night the fox had already been in the yard. We wont be getting replacements until we've built a large secure yard.

Maybe it's time to get a gun.

Always something new to learn up here.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.

  1. Your life in the woods is sure exciting and interesting. Great shots of the wild life but I'm sorry you lost your chickens. Did he kill them all?
