Sunday Stills ~Plants & Flowers

Back in the game.... it has been a while since I participated in Sunday Stills. Above is some garlic we planted last fall. We planted 3 types in which I only remember the name of one, Red Russian. I bought 2 varieties at a local grange hall sale from a lady that works at Johnny's. The other variety was purchased at the grocery store and I haven't a clue what it is. We are real good about planting around here but when it comes to keeping track of varieties we re REALLY lacking. I will attempt to better organize our garden records this year.
MM (finally) ordered the fingers for the chicken plucker that he plans to build. The only parts that we are still looking for is a barrel and an 3/4 hp electric motor. We have 40 broilers that are almost ready to go.

I got a weirdo comment once from a guy from India who wanted to introduce me to his guru. What the frick is up with that?

Spring on the farm! I love the photos, esp. the one of the chickens. They look so orderly and polite all lined up at the feed been. Frankly, better table manners than my kids.

I think garlic must be an herbal cause of forgetting...I planted 3 types and I remember their names but I can't remember which was in which row! It all eats fine though so that's all that really matters!

I am really interest in your chicken plucker. I am curious where you found your plans. I would really appreciate any information on it. By the way great photos.

Thanks for all your comments, always appreciated.

ADF, my husband is using the book called "Anyone Can Build A Uub-Style Mechanical Plucker" by Herrick Kimball. It was gifted to us by Angie (fellow blogger) at Children in the Corn, you can find her on my side bar. She posted on this as well.
