Hello ladies, I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.  We worked today on putting a fence around the gardens.


The “ladies” were very glad.  They had not been free all week as we had not had time to get the fences up.  We knew the minute they were turned loose they would head straight to the gardens.  To express their dislike of not being turned loose they cut back on their laying.  We usually get 11 or 12 eggs every day.  This week we got 7 or 8.  I told them I expected full quota next week.  No excuses.


We found this drift netting at the barn, rolled it out and cut it in two pieces.  The posts are cut from old wood we got from the job site.  Not bad-zero expense.  I am hoping the plastic bags that you see will keep the birds away.  So far it seems to be working.  I replaced the 14 plants they had eaten and so far all is well.  It took us 4 hrs to put this fence up.  Hubby helped or it would have taken much longer.


The rose bush at the green swing is in full bloom.  I think it is lovely this year. 


Another picture of the rose bush.

I realized it had been a very long time since I put a picture of Jasper on here. 


He is our farm dog in training.  Shadow has been teaching him all the tricks.  (Most times, Shadow just tolerates him).  Well, that’s about it for today.  Supper was hotdogs and beans.  Simple because Mom was tired.  I hope you all have a great Memorial Day Weekend and God bless.

  1. I think your fence turned out really nice. I hope you get lots of eggs next week. 🙂 That rose bush is always so pretty. Jasper is such a cute pup. Looks like he is taking a break from the heat. 🙂

    Have a great Sunday.



  2. The fences around your garden look great. I know we have to keep our ladies from the garden as well. Your rose bush is beautiful. I can imagine how wonderful it is to sit there and smell the fragrance of them.

    Have a wonderful evening with your family.



  3. “Yeah” for fences! Now, you will get plenty of veggies. And, maybe the ladies will be happy to keep up their side of the business! 😉

    Sweet doggy picture!


  4. Your roses are beautiful! Fencing is hard work. I need to put some up around my garden boxes. The dogs won’t stay out of them. Nothing wrong with hotdogs and beans.:) Hope you have a great day.
