Walkin'

A couple of years ago I wrote and received a grant to plant several small trees at the elementary school where I’ve been working part time. The low bid came from a company owned by Mennonites, and despite driving to the worksite in a truck all of the other labor was done by hand. You could tell the three-man crew– two young and one older– knew what they were doing as there was very little wasted motion. The young bucks did most of the heavy labor while the old man supervised and pitched in occasionally.

Food For Thought

Raccoons dug up my son’s tomato plants– twice. We won’t know for a while if the electric fencing he put up will prevent further vandalism. I see them early, just after the sun is up, making their way back from the pond. I suspect that, if they didn’t have the pond so handy, they would go the other way to the creek in the pasture. Raccoons do need water. Not only to drink, but to help them eat. We once thought it charming that they so carefully washed their food before eating it.
