Good Morning. This past weekend we decided to take some time off and do something fun, so we went camping. It was great and so nice to get away for a couple of days. We love to go camping and the boys are getting bigger, so each year is more and more fun. The mouse I heard in our wall was actually a bird in our pellet stove pipe. I figured out the scratching was in the pipe on Thursday and my husband opened it up and it was a bird. He was alive and flew away, so that was good. I don't know what the attraction is to our house with these birds. I was relieved it wasn't a mouse, very relieved.
The chickens are doing well. Max, our rooster, has been crowing a lot in the mornings lately. He also won't let the hens out of the hen house. I am not sure what is with that, but he must be sensing danger or something. We have seen raccoon foot prints on our irrigation pipe, so Max may be aware of them.
Our garden is doing well and what we seeded a couple of weeks ago is starting to emerge. Can't wait to have tons of fresh vegetables to eat. Summer is a fun time. Well, that's all for now. Cheers.
