    One of my suppliers baled 400 round bales or wheat/rye hay. I had never seen wheat hay.
    The goats love it, but only eat the top of it.

    We had some of those grass carp in a place we rented outside Memphis. My son was casting a shallow running lure one day and snagged one of the carp. We had a two man paddle boat and the son let that thing pull him around for quite awhile. The carp finally got up into the shallows and our neighbor and I grabbed it so we could weigh it. 94 pounds and bigger (at least longer) than the paddle boat.

    Be sure to "cure" it real good. Makes a big difference in making them last.

    When Dad put them in there, there were 10. The past few yrs I have consistently counted 5 of them, they are Huge. I have never hung one but I know it would be quite the battle. When ya get close to them with the boat they will sure swirl the water and startle ya a bit.
    Yeh, @OneFineAcre I ususally burn 2 times in it before cooking anything and learned a long time ago to allow the coals to burn completely with each time ya cook on it. Usually wipe down the grates with vegatable oil and the first thing I always cook is burgers. Gotta get the New taste knocked off of it....:)

    I use the Vegetable Oil spray like Pam
    I spray the entire inside of the grill and then burn a hot fire in it.
    I need to clean mine up real good an do it again.

    There simply has not been any progress made around here the past few days....my fence guy just hasn't shown up for work....:th:bow....he claims the heat and humidity is just too much for him....what a Wimp! I can remember back :old.....:duc.....guess I ought not talk about myself in such a fashion....;)
    However, in my defense the past 2 evenings the poor "Dotties" have been panting on the roost with this suffocating humidity....at least the ducks cool off in the hose spray while cleaning their dishes. We've had threats of rain, but just a couple of drops, not even enough to wipe the feed bkts out for the goats. After all this mess gets outta here the temps are suppose to be in the 70s....I sure hope so, want to get that darn fence done. :)

    Well, as I said in my journal, it's (rain line) about an hour or so away from you and spreading out so you could get some good stuff. Hang in there!

    Yeh, it's getting darker here, but no rain yet. I don't think there'll be any severe weather in it, but sure looking forward to a break in the humidity.

    Nope. Rabbits can pop right through the 2x4 inch wire.

    Skinny rabbits? Haven't seen any rabbits lately. There was the one back on Feb that I then found dead in the little barn. Another after that was seen frequently in the lower part of the big barn where the alpacas and chickens live. Guess it either got stupid and hit in the road or a fox got it. Kinda weird, we had a lot of rabbits last year. Seemed to be a new baby every few weeks for months. Now, 0 rabbits. Still see the @#$%^ woodchucks though.
