Me, Molly and mom planted our first wave of tomatoes today. 34 plants. Will have near 200 when complete. Anyway about 3 hours later we get hit with rain (bucket fulls) and of course hail. I wanted to drive my pickup over the tomatoe plants but figured I get stuck, just saying, tomatoes mean more than the truck. After it all passed, I went to see how everything faired. I have several chickens that are provided 4 star accomadations but still chose to sleep out side. Checked all the local chicken hangouts and no damage done to the birds. Checked tomatoes and to my relief they are all well and accounted for. Bear went inside the chicken house he has access to. Charlie (Bears student in training) chose to lay under a bush instead of seeking shelter in his place of refuge. Charlie is 11 week old GP that I got from Michael at Newcastle last Sat. (or I should say my wife got.) Michael Is as good as they come. Charlie was being raised around goats and chickens. He has fell in and is doing good. His mentor Bear seems to really like him too. I do not leave Charlie with the chickens unless I am near to watch as I said, he is 11 weeks old and likes to play. He acts like he wants to play with a chicken, chickens freaks and hauls butt, Charlie follows. Dont want to get any bad habits started so he will be supervised around the fowl for awhile. I will try to get pictures of him in the next day or two. He does some stupid stuff that looks funny, and I think, dang I should have my camera. I will sometime Hope noone has any worse storm than we did.
