The bugs are and have been out for a while. During the early spring it was sand gnats and no-see-ums. Now its those wonderful things plus mosquitos, horse flies and all kinds of bees and wasps. You just have to know how to dress and have a good bug net for your head. I'll be doing a review of a bug headnet I got from my friend Ben at Bens Backwoods. I also have one that my sweet Annie made for me. Both of them will be shown in a future article.
We have been fortunate in increasing the number of very rare American Buff geese this spring. We now have 9 altogether. 6 babies were born two weeks ago, but, sadly we lost one of our geese, Sneezy, to being egg bound and she died.
Now that I have things under control (!?!?!?) I'll be able to write once in a while. Stay tuned for further adventures........
