Forgot about that…

Yesterday, while working on the squash beds, I was thinking ahead to working on the beet and carrot beds today. Braveheart (front) and Nostrildamus (rear) both allow me to pet them, and even skritch their ears now - but only after I've provided them with kibble in the morning!

It also means that, while the water between the house and … Continue reading Water, water, everywhere, and in recovery
