Yay...My hens have started laying again...I think the rooster was bothering them a wee bit much, plus he injured a couple with his spurs...We took off the spurs this week and during the day I lock him outside the pen away from the girls...Well seems to have worked...
The corn in the front veggie garden is HUGE...last measured 2 weeks ago and reached 9 ft...it is taller now...Hubby is 5.11...I am excited to see what the ears look like as it is Bloody Butcher Heirloom...The basil has gone nutz too...it is almost as tall as lil Sara lol
With the heat the bee's are swarming the water again...If you enlarge this photo and look closely you can see the bees in the air around the birdbath too...this birdbath and all 3 water containers in the chicken house get filled twice a day and the bees continue to empty it...I can't wait till the hives are gone...The melon fields are done and they are no longer running the well...Might have to call the neighbor about the bees again *sigh*
That's it from me this week for the garden, been busy and it is just to hot to spend much time out there.
