4 osprey day

Four vociferous osprey greeted us when we arrived at the 2nd farm this morning. Wind and rain showers lashed us throughout the day but we persisted and managed to finish all the melon transplanting we will be doing there. What a great feeling to have all that finally behind us. One row of mulch is left for transplanting onions into and the last 2 rows of mulch will be planted to seedless watermelons and summer squash as soon as the weather turns warm again.

Sparky has been a little out of sorts since mom left. He isn't used to being on the go all day long with us fellas and his social doggy mind is a little confused by the absent person.

This cool weather is a tremendous benefit to our transplants. The tomatoes, peppers and melons are all taking a strong setting into the ground now and you can already see fresh green growth. If the hot weather doesn't return too fast, which it looks like most likely will be the case, then they should make a smooth healthy transition into vigorous growth.

Wishing you all a healthy, happy day and hope you can share with all those around you.


  • Our dog has found a turkey nest and has killed one chick (not sure if there is a different term for baby turkeys) and played with another and brought it to us as a 'prize' for the 'pack'. We have tried to help it recuperate, but I'm afraid that it won't be able to find its nest if we let it go. It's really cute. Ospreys are cool!
