country n news

this is the official news source for the country n

today is my wife shes birthday
i know better than to publish which one it is

for her birthday i built these double rustic cedar
screen doors to go over our french doors
the french doors open to our patio
there is usually a prevailing breeze that will come
through these new screen doors into our kitchen
down the hall through a bathroom to a back bed room
then out another set of french doors
it actually feels like your are standing on a bow of a ship
like in the titanic
as the breezes whistle past you
i just stand in the hallway
close my eyes
imagine it
here is some of the bluebonnets that are growing
all over our property
it seems there are blankets of them everywhere
this may be the most beautiful wildflower bloom
in several years
be prepared to tour the hill country this spring

here i am
at my hands on bee class last sunday
with my smoker
i learned how to get it lit
to smoke the bees to calm them down
it much like starting a fire
so i had no problem getting my inaugural lighting
to start right up
smoked those bees is what i did

i thought you just blew and blew that smoke on them
but really its just sort of a puff puff that you blow on them

i also received my new beehive
a top bar hive
when i put it together ill post a picture
yes like our country n eggs we will share the honey

i also moved a bluebird house to a more wooded area
you know the bluebird got wiped out real bad
a few years ago because of the deforesting we have done
the poison we have put into our environment
they now are making a comeback everywhere
i can hear their songs some when im out working
but they havent found the new house location yet

also the first purple martin sightings happened this week
so i opened up a few of our martin house doors for them

in the garden i will cover up my tomatoes ive planted
since it will dip closer to freezing here tonight
there will be more of these dips
i know
since ive lost all my tomatoes before by not paying attention
to the weather

after this cold snap
i will plant my peppers egg plant squash cukes beans basil
later when its warmer
i will add my okra

we are harvesting asparagus every day
most of it never makes it to the kitchen

this is the time of the year when i let the grass grow in the
one acre around our house
since i want to let the wildflowers to grow without being
mowed down
im afraid that it will all grow up fairly high
i dont mow it again until the wildflowers have all seeded
usually in june
snakes they gonna be real happy
my wife she not so happy
ok so i mow walking paths for her through the yard
as a compromise
