Country Livin'

Life in the country is always full of surprises and good work. We have been struggling with another varmint -- one we will not be willing to eat. A raccoon! He has been getting into our barn and sniffing out the barn cat's vittles. Unfortunately, he also leaves behind his "business" in the barn. Now, that is a smell I wish I had never experienced. Lately, he has been creeping around the garden and I do believe he is waiting for our tomatoes to ripen.

After consulting more experienced country friends we borrowed some of these:


A live trap. He was so scared and so cute.

Onto the next job.... we had an awesome harvest of potatoes.



So Jerome G. Canning master was on the job.


His set up is looking more professional every year:



Country livin'... one adventure after another.

Fun stuff... we struggle with the skunks around here! Now that is really country! By the way Sue was really into the chickens of all things! Even helped Lorea clean the coop!
