Turtle Drama

 Yesterday, we watched as one of our young ducks (Monty or Burns) was eaten in the pond. We knew it was a turtle and began the hunt. We both took turns shooting at the turtles as they worked on the deceased duck. But this morning my husband asked me to bring the .22 and walk the pond to look for sunning turtles before I let the ducks out. And sure enough there was this one at the edge of the pond. I shot it in the head and flipped it over to get the heart. Now we have 2 left to eliminate from our pond.


 About 11-12 inches long.

My June Veggie Garden

With the purchase of a tiller I put it to work. I tilled 3 times and added farm compost to the rocky soil. Very easy Dahlias. ...
