A couple of days ago, Uncle Dave killed a skunk in the backyard. Today we realized there are babies. They were old enough to make it on their own, but they will not be making it at all - as you can see. I couldn't have done it myself, but I didn't have to make that choice thankfully. He doesn't enjoy killing things, but you can't have skunks living on the farm either.
On a lighter note, the strawberries are ripening. Here is a rare photo of Aunt Mary (right) and Joanne -- our neighbor and their partner in farming.
I picked some strawberries tonight. They are amazing! I'll pick more this weekend and more jam will ensue.
The first three peas from my garden.
I have a couple of pots with sprouts too. Hope I can keep them alive.
