I sure am happy with the strawberry harvest that has been coming in.
I ran out to the garden early this morning (protected by a head net against those awful no-see'ums) and picked these so I could take some to a friend and have some for our smoothies for lunch. That's a regular sized egg in the bowl with the berries for comparison. The biggest berries always appear first, and they'll decrease in size as the season goes on.
This is for you, Tami. The first zinnia bloomed today! Not the showiest one you'll see, but at least it's blooming. May many more follow.
These are our five youngest goslings . . . the toddlers . . . who don't look much like toddlers anymore. (Three males and two females.) A little more size on them and they'll be integrated with the adults and teenagers in the big poultry pasture. Not the greatest picture. If you don't have food, they're not interested in posing.
Our sixteen assorted Muscovy ducklings are five weeks old today and doing just fine. They've been outside on grass for a little over a week now and seem to love it. Watching them chase insects and fall all over themselves is high entertainment for us.
It's supposed to start raining tonight around 8 p.m. and continue for the day tomorrow so sounds like any work in the garden will be put off for a day or two. That's fine as I'll have no problem staying busy inside!
