Put some eggs into hatching tray .Quite a few this week . Did some more pear grafting on wild flowering pear in the woods . We have wild Hawthorn here that I found could be grafted to pear . I need to try that . Quick fruiting when you have a large tree to work over to better stuff . Wildlife food . I like venison . You can plant for them but no bait . So I work within the law . No rain here but maybe tomorrow . Going to be nice today . I need to get started . I will check in during breaks .
I have about 60 turkey eggs hatching this week, I am going to use the second 1202 as a hatcher for the first time. I can get all the eggs under incubation into the one I got from EJB and hatch in the other. I have a plan to try and get the humidity up to 75%. Fingers crossed.
I like corn fed deer. I am not crazy about the ones at the cabin that live on cedar and pine. The ones around here do not taste as good as they use too either, but there are no farms left here, so they eat things other than corn.
I need to go buy some fruit trees soon. I need a new apple tree too, I noticed the other day a huge trunk was cut off the tree. I asked my mother about it as she has been telling me how poor that tree looks. The tree is the other side of her house so I do not go their often.
The conversation went like this:
Me: Mom, What happened to the trunk of that apple tree?
Mom: What apple tree?
Me: the one with a whole half the trunk missing.
Mom: Oh I cut that off.
Me: Mom you have to stop cutting and trimming that tree, you're going to kill it.
Mom: I didn't do that now.
Me: What? I saw you hauling away a bunch of branches in your trailer. ( she has a little trailer she pulls behind her lawn tractor).
Mom: Oh those, I didn't just cut them.
Mom: I cut that off when you flew me home for Christmas.
Me: How could you tell it was dead and not just dormant at Christmas time?
Mom: Oh, I could tell it looked dead and there were no leaves or anything.
Me; Mom, Please stop trimming trees, let me do that from now on...
Mom: I need to have something to do, I get bored otherwise...
As you can see, I lost again.. I need new trees, again.
Oh and Judy just told me a conversation she had yesterday with her over her eyes... I will get judy to tell me it again so I get it right... Just know she has decided her glasses do not help her when she is driving so she is going to stop driving with glasses on...
BTW she has tri-focals so I am guessing she needs glasses....
