The temp was in the 30s and the plants were frozen and crunchy. Then the Sun came up and everything warmed up again.
The change into Autumn is apparent; frosty mornings, cold showers, and the winds.
So I am working so that the birds have an environment where they can thrive outside in their yard. They moved into yard #3 with fresh grass and clover. Today I put green 'wind-break' fencing around the yards. So they are going to be good!
Oh, just now a big storm came in from the West... Rolling black clouds, wind gusts and lightning. So I was out, hustling the birds inside the coop. Well, they didn't know what the black clouds meant. So they didn't want to move from their yard. So I waved my broom around and told them it was a hawk. That helped them move a little faster..... The last ones got in just as the winds from the North swooped through.... leaves were flying all over. Wow!!!
Yesterday I call the processor about the time I was bringing the birds in. They had a glitch in their scheduling and my date got moved back to Oct. 2. So the delivery of your birds will be delayed about a week. I will have enough feed to last if I supplement with over-ripe garden produce. Tomorrow I will start experimenting with the bush beans and a few tomatoes....
Life is good. Hanging out here with wild Mother Nature is a trip!
