June brings berries

Very low yield for our first year of strawberries. After almost three weeks of no rain and with a pump breakdown, we only got about 5 quarts. You can't expect much without moisture and starlings taking their toll.


Flavorful and low numbers, but still enjoyed.

What's going on here?

Let's see...

As a couple of you know, a new chapter will be beginning next week on the employment front. That is, so long as I survive the first day of work in a new environment. I hope this will be the last place I receive a paycheck from until our our small enterprise takes off.

The planting of our cash crop this year is nearly complete in between a couple of strong storm systems and a frost last week. The tiller has proven itself as a good investment and I have plans for later this year (if time permits.)

The war on rabbits continues as I'm updating the fencing this spring. I watched one vault over the 2 foot chicken wire and through the electric fence in one leap. We'll see if my improvements are just a waste of time.

In an effort to make up for missed pictures, here is one of the best of the pheasants:


This hen-pecked rooster can't step out without being checked up on.

I don't have much time to be standing around:






Time to get back to work!
