Down to the steam with my shovel and mud boots. The ramps are late this year but very succulent, so a big fry pan and with bacon, yummy for breakfast. Leak and just a few potatoes soup yesterday, sadly the season is just about over already. With prediabetes, real food that normal people live on is a lost world to me unless I want that insulin c rap.... but I enjoy reading about those lucky people that are still alive.
God, the koi in my pond this spring are gigantic what are they finding to eat in that muddy pool? My theory of the week is that the barn sink drains into the pond and the owners horses get all those expensive (and unnecessary) supplements. Feed buckets get washed out and bingo - Shamu. Not so many bats and that white nose fungus worries me, strangely the farm is just about mosquito free and frogs and bats are my friends (FF will not be surprised). Sugar based diets are not allowed for the horses either and we have very few flies. I have lost a few customers that way but hey, tuff feces. Equus managed for 40MM years without it. Now that the spring grass is going crazy that is all they are allowed and water and only two hours of grass at that, they hoover that stuff, unbelievable, and they know that is all there is to eat until the growing calms down, they are serious. Horses heal is they forage and tummies are getting a little swollen as it is but each horse has over one acre of mowed grass each that you can watch growing as we spread the manure over winter. We really know how to screw with nature don't we. Glycophosphates are not used either and we have no superweeds.
