Hummingbirds( continued)

No film at eleven even though I tried .For most of the week I have had at least 3 different birds hanging around .I say three because that is the most I have seen at the feeders at one time.
Today a constant two with at least 20 sightings
They will all be gone in a few weeks to parts south.

It almost time for the Run


I made a few new plugs this year,I have enough for all the remaining fishing years I have left .I have poppers ,swimmers, Pencil plugs and a wide variety of tins .Now the fish have to show up along the beach.
This type of fishing is my fishing of choice.On calm days out comes the 10 wgt. fly rod. I have to start tying some new deceivers.
Someone advised me that my backing is obsolete so I have to go get a few spools of this new gel stuff

Compost Bin

The gardening books always say to add compost to everything .I don't know where they get it all.I built this last yr after seeing a video on you tube.
This contains all the material from all our beds and gardens plus household scraps. Whenever it its done I will be lucky to have a wheel barrow or two .Its all going to go in the vegetable garden

A look at some of my fruit trees

The trees around my little orchard are getting too big .Some of the fruit trees don't get enough sun.The first pic is of my lone apple on the Delicious hybrid.Followed by a bumper crop of Bell of Georgia peaches.The next three are pears an Asian whose name is Shinseiki ,a lone Bartlett on a tree planted last year, and again another bumper crop on my Atlantic queen.
I have to decide how many surrounding trees to take down .
My peaches are all over 20 yrs old which is about 140 in peach tree life .Decisions have to be made as to how many need to be replaced next spring

A Few More Tomatoes

I'll be swimming in tomatoes in a day or two
