Random-ocity on Monday

25 May

There’s a squirrel that has taken up residence in a tree just inside the Back Forty.  I have plenty of opportunities to take pictures when I’m out there.


For some reason, he (or she) didn’t seem to want to have a video taken.  But you can see it HERE.


I checked my bean field over the weekend.  It’s sprouting!


That means we’re on our way to harvest in the fall.  Because we no-till, there’s still the leftovers from last year’s crops.  Those roots hold the soil in place to keep the soil from eroding.


I also had my uncle come and till my garden on Saturday.  We had a brief shower while he was tilling.  Then it cleared off until the overnight.

I rained all day Sunday, so I had to wait until today (about thirty minutes ago) to start planting.  It will probably be an all week event.  Plus we have rain in the forecast for most of the week, so I don’t know when I’ll get my row stuff planted.


I’m excited to have a garden again.  I really missed not having one last summer.

Sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun.

      Well, the crops are sprouting, and the garden is getting planted, but the growing season is well under way.

    I have never seen a Squirrel’s tail move like that on the video. Perhaps he was very angry with you. Good to see the beans coming up.

      I don’t know why he was having such fits. I’m out there all the time.

      Thanks, Eileen. You too!

    LOL, boy that fella sure was warning you………..if he whipped that tail any harder it just might have fallen off.

      I know. I’ve never had one get that carried away before.

    Cute squirrel! I hope it behaves itself. ;)) Congrats on having a garden this year!

      As long as he’s in pasture eating walnuts, it’s all good!
