It's the Monsoon season.....weather that is fit for only a duck! Business was slow today, and I was actually glad.
The Coleman family braved the weather and here's Cedar and Rosie, checking out the ducklings...
Oh my gosh, I don't know which are cuter, the ducklings or the children!
Yesterday I let the mother duck and the babies join the rest of the herd....
As soon as I opened the gate, she just marched those 11 ducklings right down the hill...
She takes really good care of them and the other ducks leave them alone...
Here's hoping the eagles, bears, mink, dogs, ravens and cats leave them alone.
THE U-Pick GARDEN will be closing August 20th. This will be the last year the garden will be open to the public. Next year I'll be operating as a CSA, supplying about 20 regular customers with weekly boxes. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years, but it's time to try something new.
To get a copy of my book, "How To Grow Vegetables In Sitka, Alaska" just give me a call....The books are $20 plus tax. If you live out of town and want me to mail you a copy, you can mail a check for $25.60 to:
