Heavy rains last week have cleared and the sun has returned (albeit with clear skies at night and thus frosts). That hasn't daunted the lettuce which has enjoyed the soaking rains and mild temps. And while the soil was too wet for me to get much done in the field, it afforded me some time to get construction and organization projects worked on.
The tulips are nearing their end with this week being the last big flush of them. There will be a little next week but not bouquets full of them again!
The baby ducks have grown so much they graduated from the little stock tank in my room to the big stock tank in the greenhouse. Soon they will be ready to go into their own mobile hut and enjoy the green grass and sunshine (I'm working fast on their mobile run to get it ready as soon as possible).
The ducklings thoroughly enjoy their new digs but ducks are naturally extremely skittish and any change in routine sends them into a tizzy (like if I wear a different hat when changing food or water). So the move to the greenhouse took a little while to calm down from, but more space to chase each other, some fresh grass nibbles, the occasional ray of sunshine or breeze, and some patient hand feeding got them back to their happy chirps and not panicking at the sight of the huge monster that grabs them and moves them around (which also happens to be the same monster that feeds them and gives them the occasional splashy bath time)
What's available this weekend?
I'm Farmer Megan with a life full of cackles, clucks, quacks, weeds, crazy kitten, and one tiny, senior, blind dog.
