Zucchini Season

22 Jul

Zucchini season has really begun now.  I think I’ve had zucchini in some form or another for the last week.

I took yesterday’s picking to my family’s get-together and pawned some off.  My sister forgot to take hers, so that still left me with quite a few.  My ex-brother-in-law’s father said he’d only be interested if it was bread, so…

I am also making the birds happy with the peels and leftover grated zucchini.

Widow goose wasn’t really eating it, but the littles thought it was tasty.  She was just making sure the chickens left them alone.

Nugget called all the hens to eat.

Mama Phoenix does a great job of eating grated zucchini.

She looks so good anymore.  Her color has really improved.

I think she’s getting spoiled between the zucchini and bites of strawberry and worms.

Gosling Pool

18 Jul

Our weather has taken a turn towards ridiculous hot again.  After two days of finding one of the goslings in the water bucket and unable to get out.  I decided it was time to give them the big kiddie pool back.

The one little gosling was in it right away.

The big gosling soon followed.

Eventually, all three goslings did make it in, but that was later in the day.

Everyone could get in and out.

The thing that surprised me is that Widow Goose just stood there and kept an eye on the youngings and didn’t get in herself.

She is such a good mom!

I do hope she gets to get in and get wild in the water soon.  It’s been a while since she’s gotten to do that.

The goslings are growing and doing well.  The two new little ones are a bit slow about figuring out sitting in the tubs.  They like to play in the mud though.

The older gosling is getting big!  S/he is not really honking, but s/he doesn’t really have a baby voice either.

And s/he is getting a big goose feathered butt!
