Shitake FAIL

My shitake growing experiment is coming to a premature end. After getting a house inspection it was discovered that termites are eating the logs AND the garage they are sitting next to.


You will attract termites!!!

Why there is a piece of bread and a towel in my car

Today as I was driving home on my lunch break, the most surreal thing happened. Right as I pulled on to my block, a beautiful white dove fluttered down seemingly out of nowhere and landed right in front of my car. I was sort of stunned cos it was almost as if it happened on purpose, you know? So anyway, I slowly pulled around it and into my driveway. As soon as I got out of the car I had the urge to walk over to where the dove was, in the middle of the street a couple of houses down. I shrugged it off, telling myself it was probably just a white pigeon, and just some kind of coincidence. Halfway through microwaving my lunch, I peeked out the window and saw it was still wandering around in the street, and I said ok ok, I HAVE to go see it. So I walked out the door and down the street, and sat down on the curb near the dove. I held out my hand to it as if I had some sort of treat (my mistake for not ACTUALLY bringing it a treat) and spoke sweetly to it. I asked he (or she) if maybe he got lost, and told him how pretty he was, and that someone probably misses him! And he walked up to where I could almost have touched him. He was very beautiful, snow white, and DEFINITELY not a wild pigeon. But he didn't have a band on his ankle like most pet birds have. Regardless, I decided he was definitely someone's pet, and that I would run home and grab some bread to lure him back to me, and a towel to throw on top of him so I could gather him up and put him on my screened in back porch until I get off work and could get him a cage and some proper dove food, and run an ad in the paper saying "found- pet dove" or something like that...

But alas, when I returned with the towel and the bread, he was no where to be found! I put the bread and towel in my car, in case I happen to see him in my neighborhood again when I am driving around, so I can catch the poor lost dove!

PS- I totally regret not having my camera for any of this! UGH!

Today I picked wild blackberries at my CSA.

The wild ones are very prickly! Ouchy...

These cute little guys are young Guinea hens. When they get bigger they are going to help keep the bugs off of my veggies! :)

I picked a total of 6 cups so there is definitely going to be some pie making very soon! I love my CSA! :D
