Ranch Ramblings


08-23 Orchard Overhaul

Today was a very busy day! The fruit trees surrounding the hen house had become so overgrown that the house was lost in the foliage. I have been wanting to trim (cough, cough more like scalp) the trees. Also, it was getting impossible to even get to the front door due to a huge fig tree. Well, today was the day!

08-14 Corn for my Horses

This spring I planted some sweet corn with the expectation of enjoying the delicious, tender ears... Well as author Margaret Mitchell once said, "Life's under no obligation to give us what we expect..."

07-25 New Flock in Progress

Early in July of this year I received a call from my daughter, Cherie, asking if I wanted to add to my flock of chickens. Serendipity strikes again... her call had interrupted my thoughts about building a starter chicken coop that I had been planning for two years.
