Ok, so it was a little warm around noon today while I was picking cucumbers. I had salty sweat running into my eyes (it stings a little) and there were big fat bumble bees humming all around. Bumbling from bloom to bloom – you get the picture – and I think it was all making…

Whoa! Skunks you may ask? Yes, it has been an interesting week (actually the last two). Pigs do not make very good guard dogs. We have always “trusted” them to be a good deterrent against other critters coming in to the hog house where we also house our baby chicks until they are big enough…

Bugs, bugs, bugs…it’s a bugs life. All this wet weather with lots of stagnant water seems to make perfect conditions for hatching lots and lots of bugs! I even heard earwigs (they are about 3/4″ long with pinchers on their tails) mentioned in the news on my way to market Wednesday. Many people have also…
