I grow red potatoes in my garden. They're really pretty easy. I just have a hard time waiting to dig them until they're ready. No patience.

I always have the munchies this time of year. I think it is mostly out of boredom.. I hate the dark time of year.It was really hard on my when I lived in NJ in Florida I was not bothered by it. Here it is so-so out days although short will warm up a bit to be comfortable outside for a walk or a hike. Just dislike the early night fall
Making a boca black bean burger for dinner tonight. DH bakes a really nice whole grain bread instead of a bun. I am feeling friskey I think I might even slice up a few potatoes and make fries. And whine about the size of my butt tomorrow LOL

Kalyn I love your new Icon It reminds me of home .

Are the nubians the ones with the lop ears? I think those are so cute. I have signed up for a dairy goat group but so far have not had much time to join in.
I love the noise the peacocks make I can hear them in the area . I guess it is pretty un mistakeable LOL

The ones atthe shelter would disappear into the swamp and come back a few weeks later with the babies some of them would disappear and never come back. Others would just appear like roosters people would throw them over the fence at night, People there hated them so much because of the noise and the pooh in their pool areas .
Don't think that is a problem here al ot of folks have them.

Many years ago I had peacocks. I would take part of the eggs and incubate them and let them try to raise the rest. They never could, but I'd usually end up with one or two. They'll get used to you eventually, but normally don't get friendly. They can make a racket though. DH won't let me have any 'cause he thinks they're too noisy. And, if you're still looking for goats, we would usually have a nubian (milk) goat around for any orphan babies. Don't know how their milk is for soap and such though.

I do not like geese at all and I think they are mean.The swans sound nice .I am not so crazy about ducks either maybe if I had a natural pond they would not bother me so much.

We got 4 birds 2 males 2 females. They are still upset. I limit my time in the pen I go in slowly and feed and get out and go back later in the afternoon grab the eggs and toss some scratch and leave again . I am hoping the will settle soon. I feel mean LOL

No the Swans are great they never come near anyone or dirty up anyones lawns or anything like the geese do!They are spooked easily and its hard to get any real good pictures as they swim away or fly away as soon as they see you!I love to watch them but you have to hide and wait for them to swim close and then it still might not happen.My sis has the geese and they are so dirty they go all over the yard ect!But she lives a hundred miles from me so I dont have to worry about them.Hope you have a good week!Your pea fowl will get used to the place soon I bet how many did you get?Our weather has been nice too but supposed to end tonight we are going to get a LOT of rain the next few days they say!WAAAAAAAA we just do not need any!!

Satchel is like that.I swear he thinks he is a dog. I just adore him.The new kitten is very sweet . He loves to be petted I was stressing because I could not find him before I left for work.He was back this afternoon.He is about 8 months old or so. His dad is MIA he is either a very good hider or he is AWOL . Cats will be cats I guess.

Glad you are feeling better.

Hi Ginger,
Hope you ae feeling some better today,
I worked in the garden yesterday and today I had my ladies.I got my two barn cats today.They are handsome guys and they are perfect.They are semi feral they have been neutered and they were free it does not get any better then that, I saw the sign for them last week.They were living on their own and had been abandoned by their family I guess they are father and son.I think they have enough street smarts to stay safe:) Yippie and they are handsome .I will try to get pictures .

Morning,
I am still nt sure what to do LOL
I saw that little lizard again he is the cutest little thing I love frogs and toads too.I had a toad up at the old house he was the first one I had seen here they are scarce here.Rain must have brought him out.I will consider ordering some frogs for the pond after it is up and running.

I got hired Ewww so I will for the moment be working the weekends and a few mornings a week YUK..LOL ..I was relly enjoying my iunemployment checks I got for doing nothing LOL. DH has switched his work days so we will be able to have time together .Our new week end will be Thurs-Fri.

Years ago I had barn cats .I lost he favorite one in a blizzard she was so cute.Never saw her again :(

Have a great day .I need to go have my TB test thingy checked so I am off totown AGAIN

I have to run back into town tomorrow maybe I will go adopt a couple of them.I just hope my dogs won't hurt them.I think if I lock them in the workshop with food and stuff for a few days they will know that is where they live.I just get so worried that the coyotes will get them or the owls LOL I am so sissy-la-la when it comes to critters I have trouble seeing them as tools..I know they can't get snakes from the couch .Ya know I have not seen another snake ...Did see the smallest horn toad ever cutest little thing I could fit him on my thumb LOL He He I am such a Yankee emoticon

Wish I could train mine to do that. But, we keep the cats around to control the snakes and my DH couldn't stand to have any, even just front or back, so I guess we'll have to keep the cats.

It is funny the front yard is the cats and the back yard is the dogs. So we have no squirrels in the front yard and you guessed it they are all camped out in the back yard. They have learned that the dog can't climb so if she chases them they go right up the trees. I have tons of squirrels in the back along with huge oak trees and lots and lots of acorns.

I love squirrels, but don't have any at home. And we're covered with oak trees, therefore acorns, but I've never had any. We have the occasional raccoon and skunk, but we don't like them to come around because they carry rabies so bad. I think part of what keeps most of those away are coyotes and bobcats and the few mountain lions we have. At night and early morning you can hear the coyotes with no problem. It's enough to make me nervous, so I'm sure it does the critters too.

i have a very bold squirrel that i met when he climbed my kitchen screen window. all i heard was a scritch-scritch-scritch noise and couldn't figure out what it was. i threw some bread and seed out for him so he started coming almost everyday, but since i went away on vacation, i haven't seen him. i hope he comes back!

I have 5 squirrels that come to my kitchen window for peanuts. They climb on the window sill and I swear they knock. There names are Kate, Hurley, Jack, Sawyer and Declan. We go through 4 bags of peanuts a week. I do not see them much in the summer, but daily in the winter. We are not a wierd as you think. Just backyard critter loves. Can't wait for bird migration season. Many 'just passing through' species of birds.

We basically feed all comers. We have: 5 chipmunks at this time, we lost two when they couldn't get out of our ponds; four or five ground hogs a family that lives under our shed, at least three skunks, two or more raccoons, an oppossum and over thirty species of birds.

Good Morning Riely,
Sounds like you are having a sweet peaceful morning .I am still unpacking but looking forward to those morning soon.
I have in the past fed squirrels I had a little feeder that they would have to open to take peanuts.And I had a thing that held corn cobs for themI think they are cute Not to many of them here there are ground squirrels they seem to act different.
Enjoy your morning :)

Brightest Blessings

good morning everyone ~ i was sitting outside at an antique patio table that i refinished, sipping my coffee. i was watching the squirrels eat the treats i made. they are interesting little animals. so many people see them as pests that raid their feeders, but i love them. why begrudge them for trying to survive? does anyone else feed the squirrels - if so, what do you make for them? and has anyone hand-trained any backyard birds? there are some like chickadees that will become accustomed to your hands, but i've never tried it. well, i just thought i'd share my morning musings: that i had everything i needed right in front of me: a sunny cool morning, a good cup of coffee, and birds and blooms. i am truly blessed.
