Our Gardens and Orchards

What a joy it is harvesting our figs.  One of our trees is huge now and keeps getting bigger.  Backing up to the barn it has so much nourishment the cows left on the floor.  It is the healthiest Fig tree I have ever seen.  

Being so huge, I have to get on the barn and climb ladders to reach many areas, and go under the limbs to reach other areas.  This also allows us to leave certain areas for the birds.  I love it being just the woodpeckers and me in the tree!!  Those woodpeckers talk up a storm, like they are fussing at me for taking their food, and other times, it seems they are laughing at me!!! 

Whatever the birds and I are saying or doing, the "tree" still brings a bounty for both man and the creatures of nature!! 

And now it is time to get to work on those Fig Preserves!!

Purple Martins Arrival

I noticed today, the Purple Martin Society has joined with the Louisiana Bayou Bluebird Society.  In case you would like to check out the Louisiana Bayou Bluebird Soc., the link is: 

There is so much information on their site, that I think you will really enjoy going to it.

The Purple Martin Conservatory tracking map shows the Martin Scouts have arrived in Dallas, and all over the southern areas.  I may have just missed them.  The Martins should be arriving any day now!!

We were outside a lot trimming trees and getting things taken care of this weekend.  Having fun in the bucket of the tractor with the generator and electric chain saw.....that was the fun part, the clean up was more laborious, but the tractor helps out so very, very much!!

Hope you have a great start to your week!!
