When we returned from our trip, Tom noticed that almost all of our corn had been eaten. He suspects squirrels. Since the beagle was away too, there was no garden deterrent.
And our blueberry harvest has wound down. It was not very good this year.
In better news, the green beans are picking up even though quite a few of the vines had died. So at least we will have beans.
I participated in my month Taste of Old Colony History zoom today. It was New England Clam Chowder and Common Crackers. But first I had to get clams. I put in an order for pick up at Taylor Shellfish Farm, not far from our house.
And here are my clams.
Here is my clam chowder,
and here are my common crackers.
It was really good. The chowder with the crackers crumbled inside is amazing.
In other news, this morning I went into the barn and found this little chick. This peahen hatched the chick in the hayloft and then came down.
I moved them into a rabbit hutch and then added the two unhatched eggs I found. This is to protect them from the weasel I think we have. Hopefully this will work out.
