July is here!

Haying was done early this year, so July 1 the fields are green and growing.  Looks like there will be great fall pastures.


Hummingbirds are here in full force.  The young ones are learning about the feeders.  We are putting out about 1- 1/2 gallons of water a day.



The rubs are rubbed and ready for the BBQ and the start of the 4th of July long weekend..

Decided to check on the ancient pile of fireworks that have been in storage...some are collectors for sure.
Ribs are getting there...
Gravel road ride.  The traffic is terrible...  Why did the chicken (I mean turkey) cross the road????

Neighbor's barn that has been around for a very long time.
We have to put out some stars and strips for the 4th...


Then there was the TriTip....marinated and smoked....Garlic and Lime!!!

Our gravel road ride.
Then there is the tractor and brush hog...

PRESCRIBED FIRE

FIRE COULD HELP YOUR LAND

Here are a couple pictures of a fire project our neighbor did this spring.  The results are pretty amazing.

Fawn... It's spring after all.

As I have stated before, Finn and I go for a walk every morning looking for bad guys.  On the way home I decided to look at a certain section of fence.  I saw a brown spot, not really sure what it was, I was careful.   Finn was off following another scent, thank goodness.  This is what I found.

Four Wheeling Frog

Every Morning Finn and I take a walk through the fields..checking for bad guys...  Here's one that was a little out of place.  He was out in the middle of the goat pasture about 1/4 mile from the pond.  I decided it needed to go back to the pond.





Frog started out in the coffee can... about half way to the pond it jumped out onto the seat right next to me and then to the floor.  I must say, I did let out a yell when it landed right next to me as I was driving!


Back at the pond, door open.  It was amazing, when it heard the other frogs croaking it starting paying attention..one leap onto the ground, second leap into the pond and it swam away.  Happy ending for the frog...
