Spring 2016 seems to have gone to the birds. We’ve gained a few baby chicks as well as a mating pair of Muscovy Ducks. Muscovy’s are wonderful for pest control – they take care of mosquitos, flies, and mice. They’d even take care of snakes and ticks if we had them (thank goodness we don’t!). Tidus (the dog) isn’t quite sure whether to snack on all these additions or protect them, but he’s working on it. The orchard is nearly in full bloom and we look forward to an early picking season this year.
