roosters and stuff

Here is a shot I did for Wordless Wednesday on C's Life. This is my Rhode Island Red rooster. He has 3 hens, 2 of which are sitting on nests somewhere. In this shot he was chasing the other hen, poor thing. She is his favorite hen. Poor thing has no feathers on her back now.

We are getting some rain today. So far there has not been enough to do anything except settle the dust. That part won't last when the sun comes back out. I do hope it rains enough to wet things down good. It is not looking good for any of the crops.

The Farmer's Market opened up last weekend. I am hoping that I will be able to get enough to take there. If not, oh well. As long as I get enough for us. Everything is popping thru the ground. I am harvesting broccoli this weekend. Tomato plants are blooming. A rabbit has been visiting my small garden. It is only eating on one lettuce plant. I will share my garden.In the past  I have had deer come up in it(only the years without a dog).

Brook is staying with her mama tonight.

Now for the good news. Brook won first place with her science fair project! I am not sure if it was for her school or for the county.... She does not know either. LOL  I am so proud of her. Her project was testing fruits and vegetables for electicity production. I was amazed at the results. A lemon puts outs 1.6 volts and a strawberry puts out 1.2 volts! Pictures will be forthcoming when I can get her, the project and the ribbion all in the same place.

  4. HBow exciting for Brook-she should be struttin' around like that handsome rooster, proud as a peacock(mixed metaphor there!) it sounds as if you have been doing a lot of watering yourself if it's that dry and your garden is already producing. Margo

  10. Wow!  Congratulations to Brook on her electrifying results.  First place whether it is school or county is really something.  Tell her we are all proud of her.

  11. Strawberries!?!?  Really!?!?  Hmm...
    We need rain in New Jersey if only to put out the big forest fire that sprung up north of here.  It doesn't affect me but it's rather large and destructive.  We are known as the "garden" state (although our crops seem to be mobsters and diners).
