An old friend came to visit today. It was nice to chat for a while, and her kids seemed to have fun playing on the farm.
As of bedtime, I still had one surviving duckling with the flock.
Between two of the three hanging baskets, I got six strawberries today. The All Star basket is still all greenery and not a single flower. The strawberry bed - still not a single blossom from the three that were transplanted in as plants, and none of the roots have come up with any green at all.
I had planned to go make another round of nanking cherry jelly at my parents' house, but Tony isn't keen on staying all day. Perhaps we will just go to the store and buy our own sieve so we can make it at home. Seems like a fine idea too. I'm sure I can make use of a sieve more than once or twice a year now that I know how to make jelly.
We have four Speckled Sussex pullets in the barn currently. Today #3 was able to catch all four at the same time.
While I filled up the kiddie pool today the ducks decided to go for a swim. I'm pretty sure the white and brown one is Gaetos (Indian Runner) and I know the brown and silver one is Nanny (rouen cross).
