I was followed home by a dear friend who is helping Michael to clean our barn out, thank goodness they are getting to it, the barn is a mess. Our friend gets the manure, we get some much needed help, it is good for every one. My friend and his wife are amazing people who plant a huge garden every year and his wife cans everything. I so look up to her and her thrifty ways.
Latter I worked some in the garden with the boys, and found out a wild animal is digging up and eating my potatoes. I am so not happy with this and plan to trap the creature as soon as I can. I was out there looking to see if we had any damage from the extreme cold that we had last night, when I discovered the potatoes, I thank G-d that we lost no other plants. I did see some damage to the leaves of the Chinese cabbage, something is eating holes in the leaves, so tomorrow I will take egg shells out and put them under the plants and wait a day to see what happens if I still have problems I will take the de earth out there and as a last resort I will make bug repellent. It is simple onions, Garlic and hot peppers with a little dish soap added, and then sprayed on plants. Bugs hate it.
Everything else seems ok, we did have to move the cows further away from the donkey to prevent a fight, but if that is the worse we have to deal with, it is a good day.
Lots to talk about tomorrow, but tonight I need to go and get some rest, stayed up to late watching the moon go red...
