We got home from our trip to internet access on thursday and something ran past us at full speed as we walked through the dark to the house. I had the impression that it was a dog. the next morning I found this track which was a lot smaller than a dog or coyote and had claws extended like a dog so not likely a cat. It just didn't look like a fox running, strange!
I worked up the last bed in the east garden on friday and have things ready to plant if it just starts to warm some.
So far I just have some garlic and the root crops that are to go to seed. Since this is the warmest area (too warm for summer) I can plant early so maybe in a week or two.
On Saturday, Carrie and I went to Lexington and helped my mother by fixing fence on the farm where there are a few black angus cows. A neighbor's bull had got in and tore up the fence and had his way with the cows so there will be more calves at least.
It is cold and windy this afternoon but this morning it wasn't too bad so I took the mobile saw buck across the creek and used the buck saw to cut some low quality wood for today's burning. It saves from using up my good wood. Also brought over some more manure for the main garden. After lunch the wind got up and it is not pleasant outside so we went over to DQ for some internet.
