We’ve been harvesting some turkey tail mushrooms — I’ve marinaded some in a jerky sauce and that made an interesting, chewy mushroom jerky.
Anya rescued a frog today. It had rained overnight, and the frog somehow hopped on top of our chicken tractor. It got stuck in the screen that covers the top of the tractor. Anya managed to pick up the frog, and she carried it back to our pond. It hopped out of her hands when they were close to the pond.
We’ve been making suet and putting out seed for the birds, and I was thinking about making some nesting boxes this summer. In looking for ideas, I came across woodcrete boxes – a mixture of sawdust, concrete, and maybe clay. If I can figure out how to make a form for them, I think we’ll cast some woodcrete nest boxes this summer.
