Yard work day
I did a bit better sleeping last night and am almost caught up.
It wasn’t raining so I went out in the yard to do some work.
Removing the trellis
I’ve been working on cleaning this area up. I needed to finish taking the old raspberry trellis down. There’s a bunch of steel wire attached to the wooden posts I have to take off. I took it all off and made small rolls that I hung on the fence wire to store it.
Of course there’s always lots of breaks involved but I keep plugging away and things get done.
Digging up the roots
Being the shortest day of the year the sun went over the mountains to the west around 4 and the chickens started heading to their roosts.
Here’s the camera scoop Patsy
Patsy was asking how the video camera was doing I put in my brother’s garage the other day to watch for rodents.
The camera is really a big help in dealing with rodents as without it you have no idea what’s really going on.
Here’s a night shot of the door in my garage showing three rats. I have some food there for them to nipple on. Rodents had taken over my garage as it’s not sealed up very good and it’s old. This is just an example to show how it works.
My brother’s garage
I put the camera in my bothers’ garage as he said the rat is living in there and won’t leave.
After several days of the camera watching in his garage I can report there are no rodents in his garage. It might be that all of the action in there setting things up scared the rat out as they seem to leave an area if things get changed around a lot.
Chicken area camera
I have another camera I use to monitor my chicken’s nesting area for rodents and to tell who is laying and who isn’t.
That’s my report for the day. Nice day puttering around the yard.
