GREETINGS

FROM THE BARN WINDOW

My barn window offers wonderful views.  Moon light often streams through, Stars on a moonless night, Snow gently coming down, even rain coming down.  Tonight we had a spectacular sunset.    Tomorrow 6-12 inches of snow.

We have been enjoying temps in the 50’s and 60’s all this week.  I worked like a mad woman these past few days getting things done.  EVerything is picked up in the yard and manure is spread around.  We may be back in the 50’s again over the weekend, the one thing that didn’t get done was bulb planting and garlic planing.  I hope I can do it over the weekend.    

ROADSIDE TRIMMING

The Maine Organic Newspaper had an interesting article on road trimming.  You see the trimmers on the roadways all summer long.  What I never thought about is when they are around.  It seems that lots of the trimming is when wild flowers and shrubs need pollinating.  So these flowers and the insects that pollinate them are becoming more scarce.  It all makes sense and they are truly worried about the monarch butterflies who depend on milkweed leaves to thrive.  I am hoping to plant some milkweed next year.

ROSIE

Rosie is finally getting her feathers back but still sleeping where its warm and cozy in the nest box.
