The Great Onion Harvest...

...Charlie Brown. That is what's going on at our house right now..


Hub planted rows and rows of Onions and now they are needing to be pulled..a big wind came thru a few weeks ago and knocked all the tops over and they have stopped growning..
So my part in all this is to take off the tops and roots and put them in the panty hose to store them. We did this last year and had enough onions until January this year!..Onions, either you love'em or you don't~ As you can tell, we love'em
We put this Martin house up a couple of weeks ago too..In hopes of having visitors. They eat more than their weight in mosquitoes...But it may take up till next year for them to really settle in..



This is round 2 of the Killdee nest in the driveway..
Something ate her last one, and we thought it ate her too..but maybe not~ Been watching this over the last week, first one egg, then in a few days and other, and so on until there are now 4...
Have a great Monday!

I have a couple of the killdee birds in the field next to us.. I have been watching them. They just put their eggs right on the ground.
I worry all the time about them.
