|I don't think Ms Fox spends much time with her kits now, they are at least half her size and Ryan said he had seen 5 of them this year. It keeps her busy catching the groceries! I don't know if the males stay around to help. They should if they are going to make that many babies!
The weeds are certainly leaping out of the ground now, and this week I need to go between some of the rows with the weed eater to try to control them. I would have to clone myself about 10 times to pull them all. Today I pulled some weeds, relocated and reset the gopher traps, cleaned and refilled the birdbath, planted another thornless blackberry that was purchased yesterday, did laundry, planted the second half of the corn rows and watered them. The seeds were soaked all day so they are ready to take off quickly. The soil felt a bit warm, not great but not cold. The first planting is just coming up. No sign of the beans yet. Most of my newly planted raspberries are doing ok. The cool, rainy days helped them and apparently didn't hurt the corn. Beans are more finicky. I planted 2 packages, different kinds. The peas have blossoms! Some of the garlic is making scapes. I need to cut those off, cut them into small pieces and freeze them on cookie sheets, then put them in jars in the freezer. Whenever I freeze onions or garlic, I always put them in jars to keep the whole freezer from having bad breath.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
