|Sweet potatoes ride this to school.|
40 lbs. of sweet potatoes
80 lbs. I bought.
As some of you may know, I love sweet potatoes. One year, I bought 120 pounds. This year, I only bought 80 pounds. These will last until next July. I buy #1, I think, 40 lbs for $10. That is $0.25/lb. What do you pay if you buy sweet potatoes? What variety do you buy?
I can barely hold my eyes open. And, I am staggering. If this is a reaction to medicine, well...don't know. So, can you wait until tomorrow for the rest?
Exbf said the hens were very skittish today as he fluffed their nest pine straw and got the one egg and fed them. Neither of us saw a raccoon, nor did Patsy Cline or Thelma sound the danger alarm. Patsy Cline gave me an egg, so maybe she is calmer than I think, calmer than she acts. Maybe this was yesterday's egg just busting to get out.
When exbf came, I told him to pay particular attention to their behavior and scan for a raccoon in the places I saw them and around the yard. All was quiet on this front.
I have an idea. It is possible the hens see the raccoons in the yard in the morning, walking around or climbing the fences. The fear may be reinforced every day now that the raccoons want the hens.
I took the first of three prednisone about 9 or so yesterday morning. It finally wore off about 6 am this morning, and I slept for three hours. My sinuses seemed clear. Chest congestion kept me coughing for a while last night. My back and knee did not hurt last night(prednisone?), so I was able to clean up my neglected kitchen. My energy yesterday and last night was incredible.
And, how was your day? Eating sweet potatoes much? Do you raise them? Got critters after your chickens?
