I never know if, when we lived in the city, there were never that many interesting things that happened or, if because I enjoy life out here so much, I’m constantly finding things to share.
I just went into the shop to get an empty egg carton to go gather the afternoon eggs. When I opened the carton, there was a big mud dauber nest in there. I knocked it out, stepped on all the little critters. I know . . they eat spiders and I could have left them alone but there are so many of them here. I’m constantly chasing one down in the sewing room or in the house. Besides, I needed that egg carton and couldn’t very well stick eggs in the carton with that big old slab of mud in there.
On the way out to the coop, I decided to grab a handful of crushed oyster shells for the chickens.
Good thing I looked before sticking my hand in there!
There was something inside there besides oyster shells!
So . . the chickens aren’t getting oyster shells for a while!
