The Last Few Days: Top to Bottom, Left to Right


The contents of the picnic table chronicle Life here on the Farm.

So, top to bottom, left to right, here’s what’s been going on. And I note that several of these bullet points will become posts.

  • Deep Woods Off [TM]: The deer ticks are bad this year.
  • Citronella Candle: The flies are bad. Mostly they come to eat the dead milipedes.
  • No. A soda that’s left out on the table over night can not be drank– drunk– today. It has attracted flies. 
  • Hard to see, but, yes, that is a crescent wrench and a washcloth. See WD40 below.
  • Fake Frisbee and squishy football. Early evening energy burn for Rocky & Missy. You should see them! Rocky has gotten so good about “drop it.” He grows as he drops it! Vicious Pit Bull. And Missy is just a big galoot. 
  • Broccoli raab seeds in the plastic container. Enough to last a life time or two.
  • Pot holders. Mr. Big Food needed them to flip the veggie skewers.
  • WD40. There’s nothing it can’t do. In conjunction with the crescent wrench (above), I managed to get the stringy thing off of the gas-powered edger. 
  • Scissors.
  • Veggies.
  • Cooking spray. Mr. Big Food delights in hosing down his grill with cooking spray. “Don’t do this at home!”
  • Platter for chicken
  • Gas-powered weed wacker.
  • Chemicals. There are some “earth friendly” things in there. You just can’t see them.
