Oh my gosh!!!
Shoot me now!
This new computer is going to be the death of me. You'd think that new things would be easier.
It just took me 30 minutes to transfer 4 pictures from my camera card to the computer.
Ok, how have things been here at Spring Peeper Farm?
Busy! Busy! Busy!
Nothing Spectacular, just busy.
The turkeys are doing well. They're in the outside pasture now with the dog and the goats.
But did I tell you before that turkeys are stupid? I didn't think they were, but guess what?! They are.
I always thought that guinea hens were dumb. Well like I tell people, when God was giving out brains in the animal kingdom, the guinea hens forgot to get in line. NOW, I think the guinea hens and the turkeys were behind the barn having a party when God was giving out the brains.
I'm not going to bore you with the details of their stupidity, but let's just say they're not the brightest bulbs in the bunch.
The garden is growing wonderfully. I had beautiful romaine lettuce, the dill almost hit the clouds, the peas were delish and the yellow beans grew in abundance. The picture above is about 3 weeks old.
My garlic was awesome!!! I made dill pickles and dill pickles and more dill pickles. I also pickled some beets today. I'll be making grape jelly in a few days also.
Jamie has his first job! It's raking low bush blueberries. It's hard, hard backbreaking work, but he wanted a job and he applied for it. But after the first day he didn't want to go again. We made him go back, It's only for a week and a half and when you make a commitment, you stick to it. He only has two days left. As you can see he gets a bit dirty raking. It looks like he's still got his socks on!
Our plum tree actually produced some plums this year and we were able to pick them before the birds did.
I went to the doctor for my checkup on my arm. It still hurts like the dickens. He looked at the Xray and said, " Well it doesn't look like you have any screws loose."
Dave thought, " Well maybe not in her arm, but...."
Have a Blessed Evening.
