It started off clear this morning then clouded up and eventually became partly cloudy the rest of the day.
I was letting Dusty eat this morning and saw a big spider with all of it's babies riding on it's body, well all that hadn't fallen off I guess.
Usually you see these with a big egg sack behind them.
Checked the wheat that I planted last week and some that didn't get buried are sprouting and taking root.
I roughly tilled up the tomato patch and put a couple wheelbarrows of manure on then tilled it again before broadcasting wheat on it. Ran the tiller over it again lightly to bury the seed. Other the corn the garden is about ready for winter.
Debbie took Dusty back to the stable and I cut a load of garden weeds and fed the steers. They drank a lot as I filled the water up for the second time today.
While I was watching the steers I saw a Monarch making a refueling stop on it's way south to Mexico. This one was nice and bright so it must be a young one.
