My #1 crop seems to be banana spiders, though. They are so cooooool! I have one garden with six banana spiders lined up between the fence and the flowers. They are my "pretty maids all in a row". All my spiders are named Marge for the obvious reason that their black silhouettes closely resemble Marge Simpson. I tend to work around my bug-catching allies, so it is often noted that I will clear an entire section of garden minus two weeds directly in the center where one of my Marges is busy catching yet another of the plentiful grasshoppers who tend to fling themselves haphazardly around the yard.
We are filling the barn with farm equipment, and have recently begun fitting the existing stalls for chickens and a cow. Time's a wastin' on this little venture because Tractor Supply Company is hosting an animal swap on Saturday, and we are planning on exchanging money for chickens.
Meanwhile, the folks at the Humane Society already recognize us because we frequent their locale to play with the cats. We are hoping to find the perfect one to adopt, but in the interim window shopping and playing with the sweet little purring puffballs is a real treat!
We have had Internet now for almost a week, so my posts will be more frequent. After over a month without, HughesNet and their EchoStar XVII satellite have helped us survive - Beam me up, Scotty!
