Chicken Days of Summer

     The chicks got here two weeks ago and they already have feathers.  They can fly a little and they want out to explore.  The cat also wants them out, so they are still cooped up.
     Besides that, it is freakin' HOT!

     Today I realized that squash bugs love the mulch and use it as protection from my spray.  So why did I spend all that time weeding and mulching?

     The squash bugs have laid eggs on my new pumpkin vines, killed a lot of my squash, and are even attacking my watermelons and okra.  They will soon meet the wrath of the pyrethrum dust.

     Check YouTube soon for a video tutorial on recognising squash bugs, their eggs (very important) and how to control them!

     I'll insert it here too.

  1. This is the third year for these same chickens! They have started laying eggs again since the days have gotten longer. They are adorable and adored. <3
