My chicks are getting big. Look at the wing feathers.
And this fuzzy pic I took with my phone....this is the first fellow to fly up on the roost.
My sister came over and brought her Boston Terrier. His name is Stuey. He didn't chase the chickens but found them very curious and they found him terrifying. I am surprised I got two eggs today.
I am very excited. My grandkids who are visiting from NC have an uncle who is 12 years old who lives close to me. He is very strong and can dig holes lightning fast.
I hired him to come over and dig 6 holes and help me plant the blueberries.
Kailyn was supervising.
She decided to stir up the water with a stick.
After we got the blueberries in the ground we soaked newspaper in water and laid it around the bushes and in between also.
Then we covered the whole area with partially composted rabbit manure.
I sure hope they do well. I want at least 18 plants but maybe more. Blueberries freeze well and are very good for you. I bet I can can them too.
Then the kids played a little while on the tractor and on the swing. Off to McD's for some food and fun and then on home to the other grandma's house.
John is saving money to put a motor in an old truck by the time he is old enough to drive. I think I have enough work for him here to buy that motor by then.
