Tomorrow isn't supposed to be quite as warm, but the plan is to get the raspberry plants transplanted, the rhubarb in the ground (those can't go near the black walnut trees), and make a plan for where to put all my now wilting strawberry plants. I need to make a garden bed under the kitchen window to plant my rootbeer irises, so the summer breeze might bring the smell inside. I need to finish transplanting the fruit tree seedlings, and then deal with the remaining buckets of soil for the winter. I also need to get on with transitioning the rabbit tractor into a barrier for the chicken coop.
Phil, the rooster that got moved to the bunny barn yesterday, decided he likes the bunny barn. While Josh and the ducks went on their usual daily stroll through the yard, foraging through the grass, napping a couple times in the shade, Phil stayed in the barn. The door was wide open, he watched the other birds come and go, but he seemed content to stay in there. I guess he's enjoying not having to share the food and water bins with the bully roosters. There's plenty of spilled rabbit pellets under some of the cages for him to keep busy with too. Maybe he will venture out tomorrow. If not, that's OK too. Whenever he's ready to free-range, he's welcome to it.
