First egg continued 6-28-10

Just to let you all know, the egg was for real. Cheerios; Ed

Completed hoophouse 6-28-10

Well, we have finished the new hoophouse until fall when we will lower the sides, hopefully before the first frost. All the tomatoes are hanging by string from the hoops. We used Lexan on the ends to keep out the rabbits and voles.

Owl sign off for the season

Here's a baby peeking out of the Hoostel.
The Owls are mostly gone now. It's too hot in the barn during the days and the Owls are definitely out and about. They do occassionally come in during the night as we are still cleaning up after them. I sure hope they are eating voles on our farm and not venturing too far away. We'll check back in next winter and see who shows up. Adios; Ed The two adults and 2 of the 3 babies.
