~ Memorial Day around the Homestead ~

We had a very busy weekend , two birthday celebrations. One was Saturday afternoon for my nephews daughter and a cookout on Sunday for my SIL'S 40TH birthday.

So Monday we spent a quiet day at home , working. I did laundry and worked in the garden. Dh worked on the chicken coop , it's finally coming together. He's moved the building 3 times , has a bobcat and loves to use it (LOL).
I hung out the laundry on the clothesline , Dh made the clothesline last year , he attached it the pool deck , it serves two purposes. I can hang out clothes to dry and it's handy in the summer months for swimsuits and beach towel drying.
I planted more tomatoes yesterday and mulched the spaghetti squash.
How do you like Mr. Something to Crow About ~ I created him a couple of weeks ago , he has a bottle of Vitalis in his pocket. Each day I squirt some of that awful smelly stuff on him , it was given to my DH on his 50th birthday as a gag gift. I'm using it to hopefully keep the deer and crows away until the plants are large enough to add red pepper pods to them.
Seems to be working , haven't seen any deer tracks and all the seeds came up. Guess they don't like the scent of vitalis either.

Clever idea using the Vitalis!
Maybe the company that sells it should rethink their product and turn it into a deer and crow repellent! LOL!

Really Like the Scarecrow!

Really cool photos. I'd really
like to live out in the country again.

God Bless Your Creative Life!!!
