I was driving home from getting feed two days ago when out of the corner of my eye, I saw a fence post that looked “odd.” I checked for traffic and backed up. Yep, it was no ordinary fence post. It was a Great Gray Owl sitting on the top of a wood fence post. They’re very rare here in the summer and it’s unusual to see one up close in the daytime. I got a couple of photos with my phone and continued home, doing the happy dance as I drove. It made my whole day!
We got some more rain and the garden is jumping. It seems rain does plants more good than watering ever did! I’ve now got a row of pole beans weeded as well as five 100-foot rows of peppers in the North garden. Boy do those pepper plants look great. We got a new 12-volt fencer hooked up to the electric fence around it and we have a second new fencer to put on a fence (yet to be installed) around the Wolf garden. I’ll feel much better when both of them have electric fences around them, along with the stock panel fencing. No cows please!
Our corn is starting to tassel out. Little tiny ears are forming below on the stalks so I know in a few days the corn is going to shoot upward. How exciting! And more rain is in the forecast too. Thank God! — Jackie
