I have been so busy tearing apart my garden since there was no rainfall why bother trying to save it all as I had a wonderful season full of so many yummy meals.
I was offered a High Tunnel to grow crops and flowers in to help with my income and to offer organic food choices for my locals. I am blessed and it helps with all the damage done by another state office. Now to figure out how big I want it and if I will irrigate from the troublesome river or tax my well for the drip irrigation. So much to read and decide upon.
My old 24 x 18 garden is where you can see the green compost tumbler which is now all level except two pieces of fencing and my pretty gate which will be added up the hill where both tractors are parked. This area melts first in late winter with sun beating down upon it. I must remember to leave lots of room for my turtles as they require a certain soil to lay their eggs and their babies just hatched this month and are so cute though dirty.
Then we finally received rain a whole inch and a half and the baby turtles were so clean and cute ❤
Also as the heavy rain began to fall I moved from my sheltered table area where I had been reading another book by a local NH gal Janet Evanovich
I got everything inside as thunder rolled towards us when I saw something on the ground where I had just been sitting in a chair I wondered what I could have dropped as it was now pouring, after 2 months of no rain in my area. I did a double take and prayed that the cat that was sitting there had a collar but no such luck it seems that a NH Bobcat thought the shelter was perfect during the rain, as it was drenched. I watch this cat for over 2 hrs watch my birds and other small critters as it went to sleep then open it’s eyes ever so slightly and every now and then cry 😦 I thought it was a kitten calling for mom but as I would find out by the biologist I reached out to for guidance it was all alone and not only wet by horribly injured.
It would watch me in the window and every now and then close its eyes to sleep and then wake and cry out.
After two plus hours and lunch it stood to leave and my heart broke as it was so injured it was only the will to survive that kept this cat moving. I will keep an eye out for it on my property and get help right over to get it to a vet who cares for wildlife. I have a video on my Artist page on Facebook but it is too sad to watch again as I taped it before I knew it was injured.
Then there was another bear visit and he is stomping on my flowers and making a nuisance of himself 😦 sure hope it was not this bear that hurt the bobcat
Like I said what a week, hoping yours is better.
