On the homestead blog: an exciting day for the ducklings: this morning I reassembled the duckling run, and let them out of the duck house for the first time. It was also the first time they and the older ducks have seen each other. 🦆
Video: today I reassembled the fenced run for the latest ducklings. I got a bunch of pictures that will be in today’s ducklings blog post. Here are two clips: playing in the mud, while Betty quacks at them, plus using the paint tray pool. 📹🦆
I was just reminded of this Heinlein quote from Time Enough for Love: 💬
The correct way to punctuate a sentence that starts: ‘Of course it is none of my business but —’ is to place a period after the word ‘but.’ Don’t use excessive force in supplying such moron with a period. Cutting his throat is only a momentary pleasure and is bound to get you talked about.
Flower of the day: a Roma tomato flower (with some green tomatoes also visible; we’re just getting a few ripe ones at present, but very soon will be drowning in them). 🌱🌼🍅
