Greener Grass

For the past few weeks, many times a day, this silly buckling has stuck his head  through the page wire to eat the better grass on the other side.  He stands there stuck and screaming.  You have to drop whatever you"re doing and walk out to pasture - usually the far end - and fight with the strong little bugger to get his tapered head out sideways.  Well, enough is enough.  This is how I fixed the problem.

It's amazing all the things you can fix with duct tape!

Busy Garden Season

I can't believe that I haven't posted in over 3 weeks.  We have been incredibly busy with the garden, everything is coming on.  The pickling cukes are really producing and I am trying to keep up with all the orders.

I have decided to stay home from the Yorkton farmers market until after the September long weekend.  I just can't get to three markets every week.  The Red Barn finishes up on the long weekend and then I'll be back for my regular customers in Yorkton after that.

 This is the pumpkin patch.  We have been irrigating them almost every day, so they are spreading out and growing fast.

Reggie Likes Lettuce

Reggie usually comes out with me to the garden when I'm out there working.  He enjoys browsing on choice market garden produce and is particularly fond of lettuce.  I kept this old lettuce in for him, hoping he leaves everything else alone.
