I got the LOOK as well.
Killed the first squash bugs today, they are all young and seemed to favor the blue hubbard plants for some reason so I sprayed all squash and pumpkins with the organic spray.

First I stopped and got some of the long white oriental radish and turnip seeds.
There were lots of people stocking up on ammo and a few guns at the show. I had a hard time finding what I wanted as the prices were high and supply not that good.
There was lots of chatter as they say. I could hear some conversations as I walked around and I get the feeling that most people there were not happy with the direction of the country to put it nicely.
I will put down manure and put some cover on them to help keep them warm. It will also be time to put up poles and cable for them to climb on.

At work one of the girls brought in her hedgehog, at least I think that is what it was. It was asleep and was nicer about getting pulled out of bed than I would be.
The stills were still being very still as stills are still known to do.

This is definitely a challenge to deal with this one.
Of course the head supervisor had to follow me and sniff the trail for me.
Bear Grylls would have admired and then we backtracked through the jungle and across the creek and through the palletsade south gate where the supervisor got in a fight with the lessor supervisor and both then left me on my own.
Went to town and got some sealer for the gasket on our large freezer as I need to get that repaired since it is loose and icing up. Yet another project.
Went up the drive and shoveled out the ditches where they had filled up what with the last few hard rains. If I don't keep them clear all the water comes down the drive and through the garden which isn't a good thing.
The best thing I did was keep the drive by farmer off of the road with his tractors as that just tore it up and he did nothing to maintain it.

It was a cool day and low humidity but I was inside working. Tomorrow I am off. Well not really off but working at home on hopefully cutting a couple more trees.

I was cutting limbs and heard all kinds of buzzing like something was warming up engines and ready to launch their own little air force. I quickly just vanished into the weeds and found that a hornet nest had been just beside the limb that I was chopping. Got lucky that time and wiped the nest out with spray.
Work went quickly and when I got home and was going to go out side, another storm rolled through with a lot of rain so I just sat back and watched.
Getting some more light rain this evening.
Debbie said that none of the chickens got out of the new fencing so that was a success. They should start laying eggs in about a month.
