Last week I had a picture of Penelope and her poults. This week the pictures tell a very different story.
We heard the coyotes not long after we went to bed last Sunday evening. Did they have her already then? Hard to say.
I had the day off work on Monday and California cousins Russ and Margaret came for lunch and a visit. They ended up helping me find the survivors who were mostly in the very long tangled grass south of the winter coop. They were not easy to find or catch.
On to a less sad subject. The field that was brown just a few days ago is now green. The winter wheat is up and looks great!
Supper tonight was chicken and spaghetti squash with alfredo sauce. I just want to show you this huge spaghetti squash - not the usual type in appearance. My co-worker shared it with me - thank you Lois! I think it is a variety called Sugaretti - that's the only thing I could find with a google search that looked anything like it. It was very sweet and we enjoyed it.
I am finally getting tomatoes - good thing we haven't had a frost yet! My own squash and pumpkins are looking pretty good - they like the straw bales I guess. I will try to get some pictures of them for next time.
I will be back next week - hopefully with a happier post. Until then, be well friends.
