I wanted to show you what the task of weeding looks like
around our farm.
The past week has me weeding around the perimeter of my
Each handful of weeds that I pull is supervised by....
She inspects each handful of weeds and roots looking for a tasty morsel,
her favorite being grubs.
Occasionally she grabs a gloved finger!
To give you an idea of how close she stays....
you can see she stands right by my knees.
Behind me are the guys, Chuck and Tom.
They stand just as close as Edith, as you can see in this next picture..
I still haven't figured out turkey behavior.
My daughter Jenn says they stay close to us plotting our demise.
Maybe, but I think not.
They have never shown any aggression towards us.
But then, we have never threatened them, either.
The other day, Sam (bad dog Sammy) decided to play with one and started to chase him.
Sam got a good flogging in response and has not been able to go close to them again.
From this, I have learned that they are friendly as long as they are not threatened.
And....they have a good memory!
Again, I am so very sorry.
How cute...I agree with you though...if you're nice to them they'll be nice to you but if you tick them off...things will be much different. Our geese were like that. Looks like you're doing a good job of weeding...I need to do that around our garden too but I need to get the house painted first! Enjoy your weekend.
I love how they follow you for treats ..well, bugs. Yuck.
We are gardening in deep beds lasagna-style, too... we love your example! Your potatos look great!
