A Few Random Things

The other day while I was out working in the garden, Connie came over and did my dishes, washed the eggs, and cleaned the kitchen..........wasn't that just the nicest thing?  Never underestimate the power of a good meant SO much to me! Thanks, Connie!

Levi made a really HUGE wooden hammer in wood shop....

My friend that has the really cool greenhouse also has the COOLEST chicken and duck hutches you will ever see......Hobbit Houses!

Ben gave me this monkey planter......I call him "Pepper-Head" or "Basil Head" depending on what I plant..

I think we underestimate how tough seedlings least tomato seedlings. I culled a few tomato starts and set them on the floor 3 weeks ago. They have not been watered and are bone dry. But look at them! They are totally fine... they aren't as big as the good ones, but they aren't dead either.

On dry days the ducks eat alot of food at night, but on rainy days they hardly eat any. I think the worms and slugs are moving around more when it's raining.

And, just because it's such a fun photo.....Here is Levi with his adorable prom date, Celia....
