    Today is the court date for the apple rustling case. Should be interesting, if he shows. Will keep you posted.

    you might find a trucking co that hauls gypsum and ask them for a price for a large load some might do it free if they pass you it saves them haling time & fuel
    try this large trucking Co. sometimes haul gypsum ask them for prices To save them time and fuel cost sometimes they will dump it on your property for free . Won't hurt to ask Never know what the out come will be .

    Woke up this morning under siege by crows! About 20 of them are hopping about the skylights and banging about trying to open pecans. NOISY! It's like they're filming "The Birds" and forgot to tell us.

    Remind me why we should like crows…thought they also see poultry as prey….But do they chase hawks?

    My chickens graze with crows... Not ravens, crows.

    Crows chase away the hawks, but I wouldn't trust little chicks around a crow unless they were attended by a broody. I also love my crows.

    Well, I decided to listen to the crows.... The pecans are ready! So spent today doing a harvest. Will probably have crows again tomorrow, but they won't find as much.

    And while I was at it and in the mood, I took the last of the Cortlands off the tree. Harvest season is done!

    Thanks. I bought the place as a fixer-upper because I needed a project and, ergo, the yard had been abandoned/neglected for 1.5+ years. Last year was spent rehabilitating the yard and trees; this year the rewards came. (Still babying a couple of trees, but I'm betting next year is Nectarine City!)
