Good Morning sweet ladies, I was able to go out this morning and walk around the farm (in my nightie of course). It was nice just to see what has been going on since we have been so busy with harvest. I took some pictures so you could see that it has been quite busy.
Yesterday was the first day of Summer, did you know that? Wow the time is going by so fast.
Anyway, I have a little news from the farm.
Mrs. Puddle Duck is going to be a mommy, I guess she is a mommy, she has little life growing in each little egg! Hmmmm, that makes my heart smile! This time she is serious! Look at the feathers! She was so busy picking up sticks around the farm during harvest and I didn't even notice she was building her nest. The wheat truck was whizzing by her all the time and no one even saw her. She built her nest right by the little Milk House.
Notice the feathers that she pulled out all around her? Now, I am not sure if she only has duck eggs or maybe a few chicken eggs also. Mrs. Americana can't go and lay in the Milk House anymore. She keeps trying to get Miss Red off her nest, every time! That is so not nice and so she has to stay out. I had to put Little Miss Fluff in a cage also, because she wanted Miss Red's nest too. Soooo Miss Americana has been laying her eggs on the steps. Haven't seen any, lately, so I think she might have been sharing Mrs. Puddle Ducks nest. I'll see if there is an egg today on the step. They have shared a nest off and on. It will be a surprise. Mrs. Puddle Duck is not moving this time! She puffs all up, if you get close to her, she is going to be mean I think. She started hissing at Taylor. It is so neat how the Lord puts inside each animal how to protect their young! Good thing! He is so good. She is all protected and hidden where she built her nest. She is a smart Momma!
Look who came to visit uninvited!!!!!!!!!! I went over to go check on the tomato plants. Here is another tomato worm, he took advantage of harvest time. I didn't have a chance to check the garden, because we were all so busy. He got big. Kind of neat 'big" guy, but dangerous to a tomato plant!
