Yesterday I got the groundhog dig destroyed. Flooded it again, then dug it up & refilled with backhoe.
Sadly I can't do that. If I flooded the tunnels it would undermine the barns. And obviously, even if I could get the backhoe into the barn I wouldn't want to start digging. The critter is still out there happily ignoring whatever I put in the trap.

I read they like cantaloupe..........????

I saw mine one day...small/young one. His dig was out in the chicken yard and wasn't finished, I'm sure, as it didn't have the multi areas for food and sleep. Just in & out, about 8-10 feet apart. Busy guy!! :D

Glad is was where I could get to it. Yeah, you have a problem one. But he must be happy!

Morning, thanks for the coffee pa, I also on garden duty. Got to get it ready for my seeds. I keep thinking of trying out the beets in the clay and seeing how they do same with the carrots. I don't think I get raised beds in time for this year. I have so much tilling to do. Also might have gotten to many seeds for well this season but i use them next season as well. We don't get cold till late October is generally our first front and that can drop it to freezing but doesn't stay there. So who knows how long this year my plants can go. Dh just left. He got a busy day. Nothing new around here. Farm chores, house work, school more house work more farm chores baking. Oh I decide to start trying some casseroles my kids are pretty picking about things be mixed together we see how this goes.

Thanks for the coffee. We got back from my sister’s last night at 7:30 I fed animals and hit the garden. I picked 3 rows of purple hull peas, got 2 wash pans, shelled out 6 pounds of peas. Gonna finish this cup of coffee, get dressed, do chores and go pick the other 3 rows of peas. Tomato vines are loaded, gotta pick them too! Our son was thrilled with his cases of canned tomato sauce and salsa. Now I gotta can more for us!

I hope that's a miss type!!! :ep

Still hot & dry here. Gal was to bring 2 goat kids to band today, not now. Moved until tomorrow....told her then or find another to do! I mean I can only work "favors" in so many times & adjust my own work. :he

I'm enjoying coffee -- while I check on everyone & update on me. :caf Slept well and longer than usual, thankfully but, need the kick.

Chicken coop re-work today so I can move more into it. Then 5 more bucklings to move in with other 6.....auction day 8/8 & they need to be where I can load all easily. They'll love the xtra hay & grain for a week. :) I need to get them in there while I have time to wrangle if needed. I have a heavy work schedule next week and won't have time to move them. Prep ahead.

Tonight is the veggie auction -- I'm excited! Need to get tomatoes canned for winter. Will be busy tomorrow with all that.

Everyone enjoy their day!! :frow

Coffee is ready! I woke up around midnight to heavy rain, went right back to sleep. Rain! I let Trip and Carson in a few minutes ago and the rain settled the dust around here, hope we got an inch or two. It's been so hot and dry, my sweet corn was just coming up, i watered it good before we left, but a lot of it died while we were gone. I counted live corn last night and i got 45. Planted 95 seed, most of it was up, but not now. :( Oh well, i got 13 pounds of shelled peas in the refrigerator to put up today, a bunch of tomatoes and eggplant. Another busy day in the kitchen! Maybe two.
