Today is supposed to be hot again, so I wanted to make sure to get the garden watered early in the day, while it was still cool. I started with the soaker hose at the squash tunnel, then went around checking the melons, squash and gourds. I was extremely disappointed to find this. Our one … Continue reading Our 2021 garden; NOOooo!!! *sob*
As I write this, we've had several rainfalls, and even a couple of downpours. We've had more rain today than we have had all year until now! It is so exciting! We actually got our first bit of rain this morning, while I was quickly doing my rounds. In fact, it was a bit of … Continue reading We have rain!!! Lots of rain!
I have a bit of time before I head off to pick up our meat pack, and just had to make a quick post. It was a bad morning in the garden. While heading over to switch out the memory card on the garden cam, the very first thing that I saw was this. Of … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: morning damage
My morning rounds were shorter today. I did not water all the garden beds this time. I've been keeping a close eye on the weather radar, and we might actually get rain! Yesterday evening, I grated a whole lot of soap to scatter around in the old kitchen garden. It either worked, or we didn't … Continue reading On the menu, and passing through.

I took some screen caps from the videos. There was only one night time file, and it looks like the first definitive … Continue reading Tulip cam’s first pictures
I am curious as to how this deer got so damp all over like that, but his mother wasn't.
The deer had to do some digging to find the feed, buried in the snow!
It's always interesting to watch the deer when they are on alert, and those loooong ears are constantly moving around.
It's the end of April as I write this. The next few photos I'll be posting were taken in the middle of the month, just after we got a significant snowfall. What a difference a couple of weeks makes! And what a face this young buck is making! Not too keen on having to dig … Continue reading Critter of the Day: What’s that face?
