Good morning! The offending chippy has been dispatched. I have never had a problem before, but I do know that rodents will kill and eat protein when they need it and there are so many rodents this year......, you would think they could just stick to hunting each other, but noooooo, so now I will be proactive on the little beasts. And for good measure, I will be double fencing the chick enclosure as well. Who'da thought! Coffee up cow kiddos, its gonna rain again. DH also got the bottom of the cold frame done so now I can plant the poor squash and tomatoes that have been drooling over their new home. We will see what happens.
