The sun finally came out this morning after days of solid clouds. Wild turnips are in full bloom.
The supervisor was out with me and Aggy this morning but both got distracted to a particularly interesting clump of grass. Something like a bob cat or coyote must have pissed on it to get them to both become so absorbed in the scent.
Hey dawg, this grass it smell nasty, no?
Dusty was watching them as they left the clump of grass and walked together up to the road, I think he sensed that this wasn't right. It was a real Disney moment, well until the supervisor must have realized what was happening and turned and attacked Aggy with hissing and kung fu claws. Ah, friends no more, Aggy just lay down as the supervisor angrily walked back to the house. The evil smelling grass lured them into a Disney moment but nothing more.
The seedlings got moved out to the green house this morning as it was already 60 inside.
When it gets too hot I just prop the window up a little.
A couple of the old chickens were sunning themselves, sometimes they lay there like they were road kill in weird poses.
I baked this for lunch, doesn't look like much but it turned out good. It was a turkey pot pie type of dish but instead of pie crust I made corn bread and poured the batter on top of the pie filling and it baked into a crust. I think this would be good with chili or even just pinto beans under it.
I didn't take any more photos as I just spent some time digging grass from between the rows of hops, it would have been a rather boring photo. I still have 2 more areas of grass to dig out and I plan to till it and plant field corn beside the hops as they can grow up on the corn this first year but next will need wood supports as they will be established.
