It has been several months, now, since I moved the turkeys to their new house.
And still, every evening they return to their old stomping grounds...
and roost on the goat yard fence.
every evening, early, we escort the turkeys back down to the barn,
to their new house.
It's the daily turkey parade...
if anyone saw us walking behind the turkeys flapping our wings to keep them going,
we might just be involuntarily committed!
Last night as I was walking the turkeys home,
we encountered Moll in the field.
The turkeys, never missing a chance to intimidate, began to follow....
as you can see, Moll could have cared less!
With the turkeys safely stowed away for the evening,
I stopped by the garden for a chat with Minerva.
She confided in me that she has grown weary of gardening
and is ready for the season to finish.
A long winter's rest followed by a spa visit is just what will cure her garden blues...
her Spring return is always a welcomed event!
The last of the flowers remain in the garden...still beautiful as ever.
It seems, though, that the kale is not as lucky.
The kale has sustained a widespread attack by an army of marauding beetles...
eating it right down to its skeletal remains.
Hopefully those nasty bugs won't find the kale flower growing just a few boxes away.
I am counting on these to help get us through early winter.
I also wanted to share another update on the roosters' pumpkin carving project...
Each day it gets a little more ornate!
I see a mouth and perhaps one eye at this time.
After several days of weather in the upper eighties,
we are hoping things cool down to typical October temperatures.
Hot weather is not too comfortable for donkeys who have started to grow their winter coats!
Here's hoping your day (and your week) is a great one!!
