We had several deer show up at the feeding station, yesterday evening. We could see more out the back window! https://youtu.be/3UZeRLuS7k0 There ended up being 7 in total, with one last deer popping out from behind the garden shed near the end. 🙂
Yesterday morning, when I went outside to feed the critters and do my rounds, it had already been snowing for quite some time. I had to brush several inches of snow off the platform bird feeder, but the deer feed just got put on the ground in the usual places. Of course, it got completely … Continue reading Can you tell?
It's a dreary, cold day today, so I wanted to post a photo of a more pleasant day, taken while my mother was here to see the changes made since her last visit. Last year, we raked all the leaves up and added them to the old kitchen garden as mulch. I don't know that … Continue reading Fall colours
Today turned out to be too cold and damp to do the mowing between the trees I cleared last year, that I hoped to do today. I thought I might be able to at least use my reciprocating saw to cut some of the smaller stumps of trees I took down last year to ground … Continue reading Clean up: west fence line and maple grove
Yesterday, after picking the crab apples, I had time to start working on the old dog houses, as part of our winterization plans for them. We were getting severe thunderstorm alerts and, looking at the weather radar, it looked like these ones were not going to miss us, so we rushed to get a bunch … Continue reading Prepping the old dog houses
I was finally able to get back to working on taking out the broken tire planter today, and was able to get it finished! I am so happy to get that done! This is where I left off, last time. Unfortunately, the kittens have been using it as a litter box. In fact, starting to … Continue reading Clean up: broken tire planter area – Done!!
It's been awesome to finally have some cooler weather, and a chance to get at least a bit more clean up done! This old wood pile continues to prove itself a bigger job than expected. Here is how it's been progressing since I started on the area, if you want to look at earlier photos. … Continue reading Clean up: old wood pile, today’s progress
I didn't get as much done cleaning up in the old wood pile as I'd hoped, but a little is better than none! This is most of the area I focused on today. I got more old pallets out, and a bit more rotten wood. For the most part, it's too rotten to even pick … Continue reading Clean Up: old wood pile area, a bit of progress
Things actually got chilly last night, and we had a wonderfully cool morning! I was really looking forward to getting some progress in the yard. Of course, by the time I actually got out there, it had warmed up considerably. 😀 It was nice, working in the shade, though. With the way things have been … Continue reading Clean up: old wood pile, progress
While doing my significantly more limited rounds this morning, I had to pause and get a photo of the ground by the feeding station. With the rain we've finally been having, things have really greened up again, and started to grow. Including bird seed and deer feed! This picture if of the area on the … Continue reading Growing things
