Trying out my daughter's camera
I found our little porcupine up in a tree.
The way it was sleeping I could not tell if it
was asleep, or dead. Until I shook the tree
and woke it up. ;)
First time I've gone down to look at the squashes
in quite a while. Other than losing 3 out of 4 of the
little cukes, they look to be doing OK despite not
having a lot of rain. I am going to have to invest in
some hose to go way out there.
The squash with the wool skirts around them are
doing better than those without. I have plenty more
skirtings under the table to put in the tractor to take
down there. Between mulching out weeds, feeding it
sheep poop and holding in the moisture, it is a win-win.
And, with me gardening with the no till method, I can
leave the skirts in place. Just pull the spent plant and
dump it in the compost pile. A little fresh composted
manure in the opening for the winter. Dig a hole in the
manure and put in new plants next spring.
Now to find the time to put in some pole beans.

We still have 10 lambs available for sale.
I am keeping one more female.
Carl the Cow's twin sister.
Cara (as in Car (soft) a)
That would be Cara with the hay on her head.
Patty Duke is to the right and slightly behind her
(in the picture below). He brother Carl is behind right
(in the picture above)
Looking toward the boys.
Nea and Noggen.
Yes, I know my ceilings are covered with spider
webs. We like our spiders. They keep the fly population
under control. As do the Phoebes. But, the 3 babies in
the nest next to the light are so LOUD!!!
The cabbage and broccoli are doing well.
But, then again, his nibs has been watering
this garden every couple of days or so.
One of the upper gardens. There is some lettuce
growing along the stone wall. I need to plant some
more. In the weeds are peas.
See the pea pod?
Hopefully the video works on here.
The lambs are so cute!
Stay cool and have a good night all!
