Another chicken lifted to a different nest high in a white pine I’m guessing. Edith Piaf. My character marans. Chickens in the coop for 3 days. Loaded up on feed and water as we go to fall lake tomorrow. Sister will be here Friday night. But those days in the coop should break up some of the madness.
bummer.. Many times the only way to break that cycle is a week of lockdown.

Would you like my recipe for raptor stew?

Enjoy fall lake.

Will you be visiting the Winton Roadhouse?

Did you go to the campgrounds on the river Saturday?


We spend the past several days in the Suburbs of Fredenberg. We were only in the greater metropolitan area of Fredenberg once.

On the way up we waved at @EJB as we went thru Adolph.
We did not attend the family reunion. Too much going on at moms with all those kids. That is only have if the grand kids to I believe!

You got a new cat!!!

How lucky. Did you name him yet?




I thought I had learned the secret to big onions on the internet... they lied!

I cut the tops and dig out around them. They did not grow larger. The outside ring got harder is all..

And the tops still fell over.

Does anyone know if there is a way to grow large onions up here? I want softball sized onions.

Is it even possible to get large long day onions?
I get large onions. We softened up our ground quite a bit but dumping all the leaves and grass clippings on it and filling it in for a couple years. I don’t dig around or anything. I do get some small ones but most are pretty big. Maybe not softballs but some are close.

Man that is not fun. I went out last night and found a dead hen in the coop. She had been acting funny for a week or so but no obvious signs of any sickness when I would pick her up and check her out. Everyone else in the coop looks fine though.

Uhhh... Tell you what. How about throw up a big, beautiful wall around those big cities (We'll do SF) and give 'em complete & separate autonomy and I think we could be persuaded...
