As you may notice, I live in a rocky area and must use a lot of mulch and work with the soil here. A small rock garden returned after that cold, cold winter and always the dandelions prevail to help feed the bees!
The chicks had a quiet night. I gave them a cardboard box to sleep and hide in while they spend time in the dog kennel in the downstairs bath. I have a barn but it is too early to be out without a lamp, and soon they have a small chicken house to be in. That will be a photo event.
I am fortunate to have found someone who will bring in their bush hog and a tractor and we are just going to clear up a little around the deck area here. A raised bed will produce some vegetables that no doubt will again entice the deer but I have some fencing that may help. I am willing to share a little but not all of it.
Time to start up the mower. A really nice, clear morning in the Catskills. Photos and notes by Wanda Callagy
