Just in case you were wondering, here's how our garden grows. It's a jungle out there! Notice the garden glove on the fence post in the picture above. It's like my garden is shaking it's fist at me. Anyway, the tomatoes are almost done; the Lima beans, cucumbers and zucchini have been pulled up; the peppers are in their peak (what am I going to do with all these jalepeños?) The tall plant you see on the left is a tropical pea called Gandules or Pigeon peas, it apparently needs a long growing season because it's just now started blooming and putting on peas. I hope we get to, at least, taste a fresh batch of peas in a pot of arroz con gandules (rice and peas Puerto Rican style.)
This morning I was able to get a few pictures of our standard routine. First, someone spots the turkeys trying to have a nice calm walk up the hill. As you can see this momma turkey wants no part of pictures and gets her little one on the move.
Next, Scrappy or Corrie spots the movement at the top of the hill and the begging and whining starts at the door. Scrappy is bouncing like Tigger at the door and Violet is whining in piercing barks at the rear of the pack. So, to save my hearing, I make my way through the pack to the door and release the hounds! Up the hill they go, as fast as they can (Scrappy is always in front!)
Charlie nearly always turns and runs back down the hill. He's not really into confrontation :O)
If I happen to be standing there, he grabs his Frisbee and trots around trying to lure me into a game of fetch.
Daisy is always available to give him her opinion and play.
JP, wouldn't you say this happens all day? It's not always turkeys that they are chasing, sometimes I think Scrappy just gets bored and leads them all on a wild goose chase! Okay, I thought that was pretty funny. JP knows, I crack myself up sometimes. It's nice to be able to entertain yourself!!
Blessings to you from the gang in the holler...
