Out and about in the back yard

My much anticipated day off was full from morning until night. I started with breakfast by scoping out my competitor. It was a very nice breakfast but they used process cheese...yikes...I honestly did not think anyone used process cheese anymore. Then off to the animal store for farm fencing, diatomaceous earth for the chicken house, dog and cat food. Back home Art is clearing and burning debris from the veggie garden, I finally plant my blueberry bushes that I won last year and a small weeping willow type tree that my mom gave me. Scared my weeds into submission, they were quivering as I went up and down the flower bed pulling, digging and raking. I cleaned out the chicken house, Art put up the fence between the chicken run and the veggie garden and went over it with the rototiller. What a glorious day!!!!

The two blueberry plants...the rest will be strawberries.

And this is the weeping type willow tree...anyone know the name?

So sorry to hear about your chicken. Sounds like the rest weren't affected. That's good. As Betty said, I got to work in my garden too. I pulled and stored my remaining carrots and beets and put on some manure so it can rest and cure for a month. The weather sure is perfect for outside work. Now I'm so curious about your competition. I thought I knew but now I'm not sure. But in my opinion, Magpie's is the best. - Margy
