My Man of Action took the boys out back where they were schooled…in the caring of trees, that is. One of our recent farm projects has been planting an orchard of about 35 fruit trees.
A full bucket of water with a pin-prick sized hole should sit next to every tree to keep each one properly watered…or so an internet search tells us.
We rudely interrupted some of our resident fowl, but they didn’t seem to mind too much.
And we found this mother duck hiding in the tall grass where she was protecting her nest of eggs. Can you spot her?
