Frozen Snake Games

My husband knows I like snakes. He called me to look at one that would not move.
See, frozen snake, did not budge once.
His whole 3 foot of him.
My camera case did not phase him. Just a black snake looking for bugs and mice.

A peas me.

Here was the last of 9 lbs of sugar peas I planted from seeds - old seeds I had. We have been eating them pod and all until last week.  I saved some for fall planting. I shelled the hard dry ones for later. It was easy to grow these and the bees love the flowers. These peas will become a regular planting from now on. Still on the fence with my sweet corn battle. I have grown corn for 4 years. This is the first year with bees. I hope they pollinate this time.

My 3rd  group of orphan ducklings. One day I hope my broody ducks will be good mothers. These hatched by mistake under a broody chicken and they were pushed out of the nest. I took them from the coop and into a brooder box until they can be fostered by an old mama duck. Lots of work but they grow up fast and are better for it.
