Quiet Week of Planting
3 weeks ago, I put 25 eggs in the incubator. 15 of those hatched out for me. 1 chick drown in the water over night and 4 more didn't make it longer than the next day. The rest are healthy and happy, eating and drinking like they should. Now if I can just keep the puppies from eating them. At least they'll grow a while before I have to worry about those puppies getting after them.
Well, the farm now has 100' of water melon, 100' of cantaloupe, 250' of sweet bell peppers, 300' of tomatoes, 20' of cucumbers, 20' of zucchini, 2 sets of tater tires, 200' of hot peppers, 4500' of sweet corn, 800' of corn meal corn 200' of kidney beans and some misc stuff nobody eats but me. Now all we need is the rain coming in for this weekend.
I've been push mowing around the farm today since the big mower is broken and no chance of getting the repairs done. Just gotta do what I can, when I can...
