Unloading boards, Planting Seed, a Computer Scam and Dried Prunes

Setting up the nesting box project

Once I got it going this morning I went out and unloaded the boards from the top of the van.wood


It took longer than I expected. By the time I got the boards off and all the ropes and wires put away I was beat.

My little sun flowers are blooming away. They are for seed for the chickens. This variety is an oil variety that makes small black seeds. My lumber is in place to cut boards for the chickens nesting box.flowers


Planting alfalfa and clover

Next I raked this part of the garden out and planted alfalfa and some kind of clover seeds. I raked over it after I planted the seeds and sorta walked on it to pack it down a bit. Then I turned on the water for a bit.plot


I’ll have to keep the chickens out of there until things get big enough that they can’t just wipe them out real quick.

Rounding up tools and materials

I spent some time finding all the tools I’d need to make the chicken nest box and I figured out what length boards I’d need to make the frame to get started, and after that I needed a break.

All tired out

I was getting hungry so I had a big bowl of vegetable soup and that did me in. I was so tire I napped for most of the afternoon.

Fixing Tom’s computer scam

In the evening I was just about to go back outside when my brother Tom comes by and says his computer has a screen on it he can’t get rid of and it says to call them to fix it. We knew that was a scam.

I told him to turn off the computer and he said he couldn’t so I said just pull the plug.

Anyway I went over there and changed settings so the computer would turn off when the button was pushed instead of going to sleep. Once I restarted the computer the bad screen was gone. I fixed a couple other things he was having trouble with like it would go to the lock screen after only one minute and he’d have to enter his pin again which was a real nuisance. That turned out to be the screen saver was set to turn on after one minute. Duh.

Anyway it’s fixed.

Drying prunes

I’ve been drying some prunes in this old truck bed trailer and they are almost dry enough now. I’ve had to cover them up at night to keep the dew off them and the night critters too.prunes


That was my day.

    Sounds like you wore yourself out today. The veggie soup sounds good and that looks like a great way to dry prunes!
