|Last evening I saw something I still find hard to believe.... a fox chasing a coyote! I think the fox must have had the element of surprise in it's favor. The coyote was running very fast and about 1/4 mile ahead of the fox. Apparently the fox decided the coyote was far enough from it's den and youngsters and stopped. At that point the coyote stopped running. The fox sat down on the hillside where the coyote could see him, and after a couple of minutes it turned and went back the way it came. Had the two of them physically tangled, the coyote would have easily won.
Peas need to be picked today, a job I intended to be doing yesterday just about the time our neighbors came to pick up their mail we'd been collecting for them while they were gone for 3 days. And of course we all had to visit. I sent them home with about 15 pounds of rhubarb. Her plant is not doing well, so she is going to get a start of mine this fall. Both of my old plants have multiplied so many times that they are getting stunted. The fat stalks have become thin ones despite having a whole wheelbarrow full of compost dumped on them last fall. It will take some serious digging and probably some chopping to get that job done and I will have to be brutal with making divisions. I think that no matter what I do, it would be an improvement!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
