    First outdoor grow

    here's some pics (below) I found years ago and my help. Also with rain have your plants covered and check them at least once a day. I check mine at least twice. besides checking if its time to harvest, check for bud rot, pm, fungus based problems are more likely now. Here's a link to last year's grow that can show and explain. It starts from cloning them indoors to harvest along with different methods.

    My new pup Chloe

    Right now have a dog sleeping on either side of me. It's been an exciting day for both. I went to meet Chloe first on my own at the pound. . I let them know Copper's history with them. Chloe was shy but sweet after warming up (didn't take long). She was a stray and the pound thinks she's just 5 months old. She's almost the size of Copper and he's a full grown 3 year old. I put her on hold and went to get my dog. I let him sniff me to read Chloe, and his tail started wagging and his sniffing intensified. He started to give his happy excited wine and bolted where his leash is. Let's just say this was a excited car ride. I checked in for the meet and great then took Copper outside. While waiting, he marked every tree and bush ...and took the biggest poo I've even seen him do. Chloe came out, Copper stood at attention, wagging his tail and wining. We walked Chloe and Copper down to a fenced in area with a chain link between us a few times. Copper calmed down a little. We did the same thing in the fence area for awhile allowing them to get a sniff of each other hear and there. All going well so we let Chloe walk area with leash dragging on the ground. Then I dropped Coppers leash on the ground and we watched them. Copper found a few toys laying around, so they were put up. I found many Copper missed while checking out Chloe. The ran around together. some playful growls. The only not so friendly growls was when Copper was smelling her rear too long. I think she was saying, I'm not that kind of girl) She was spayed 2 days ago. When one stopped running the other would stop. We watched this go on for 30 minutes. I put Copper in the car while doing the paper work to adopt his new buddy. Chloe needed to be lifted in the car even though she was quiet on the trip to her new home, she did pee a little. I will work with her on car rides among other things. I have her vet visit set up, got her some puppy food, vita hip and joint support for hips and joint health. I'll be ordering her DNA test to confirm she is an Aust Shepherd X Great Pyrenees. When we got home, I got Chloe out of the car then Copper. I took them to the front yard for a bit then in the house. Moose was under the dining room table and stared not fluffy. Chloe is more interested in a quick sniff then move on. Locked the hens to the side yard before letting Chloe explore the backyard on leash at first. Later Copper wanted to play and run around with her. I did let her look at the hens and distracted her and saying no anytime she was staring too long. It'll take some time for the hens and Chloe to get used to get other. Copper has shared a few treats he has stashed away. Chloe has peed once in the house but stopped when told no...finished outdoors. She is picking up on some commands, mostly cause she sees Copper do them and both are told they are a good girl/boy. Nibbler has tried the fluffy badass and was chase not long Below is Moose walking slowly by a sleeping pup. He did smell her feet. Sometimes Copper will give a yelp when they play. Chloe is still learning how to have a soft mouth.

    The pound called to let me know that she is waiting to hear from there vet. Their vet should get a copy of Chloe's x-ray and look at it today. I asked if they can't and I find a vet that can, would you still be willing to pay 1/2. She said they don't have a contract with them, but if the price is responsible they would.

    Here's the link to Moose RIP I will never understand how someone can take a sweet and trusting pet and subject it to so much cruelty. I"m not forgiving and I don't forget about cruelty of any kind. I have no problem walking up to a person (including my own kids) torturing their pet/animal and attacking them in some way, could be punching, kicking, or choking, to get them to stop asap. Or record it and report it. If the law didn't say it was illegal to kill these scumbags, I'd kill them slowly on the spot. Chloe and Copper are outside playing now.

    I just signed Chloe up for training school through Petsmart. She'll be going threw the Premium package which is Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Education. Once a week for 1 hour in a class setting with the trainer and others for 6 weeks for each level. I like classes during the day during most business hours that way the classes are smaller and the store is quieter . They do offer therapy dog training too and may consider it after her training is done

    First 1, then there were 3

    i was coming home when we saw the first, then when i got to the house i got a picture of 3. i went to get my nikon to get close ups and they were gone. We live next to lake st marys which is 6x11 1/2 miles and we have many preditory birds that live all around us. Perigon falcons, red tail hawks, cooper hawks, owls and bald eagles and golden eagles. i can't believe they're still here with as cold as it's been. Lots of hummingbirds too. i love where we live on a street across from the lake that most don't even know exists. Moww's only 10 minutes from work and i have my little bit of country. We're surrounded by state land and those who live here are very nice. i'll shut up now

    I tried one of those bitter sprays to get Nibbler to stop washing her bald belly. My son was curious what it tasted like and tried it after he sprayed Nibbler's belly. Nibbler went back to cleaning her belly without skipping a beat, but my son was frantically making funny faces, sticking tongue out of mouth, rinsing and brushing his mouth. He said after a few minutes he can still taste it, and took one of my cough drops to cover the taste. That seemed the only thing that worked. I didn't want Nibbler to get stuck in her depression. I lost my cat Katie when she got stuck in depression after her adopted son, Simba, died and she willed herself to death. The bond Moose and Nut Nibbler had was just as strong as that bond. Since everything we've tried to cheer up little Nut Nibble has failed (she may enjoy the pets but walks away looking sad), we went down to the shelter to look at kittens. I told my son avoid black and white kittens they'll remind Nibbler too much of Moose. The first kitten we came upon looked like a smaller version of the mighty Moose cat and was very playful. There was a grey kitten with two orange ones that were very loving and playful. When I look for a new pet, I find the ones that its harder for them to find a home. We saw two black kittens with a sign that reads, " We are bonded and loving brother/sister team who would love to find a forever home together. We love to play and purr, but take some gentle attention at first." The pound had a deal on them get 2 for the price of one. They had to be adopted by someone who wasn't renting. They are very shy, but I knew we found the right kittens. The pound named the boy that is twice the size of his sister, Midnight, and his sister Magic. I'll probably change these name after I get to know them better. I will get a picture up soon. My phone is charging and I think the flash from my camera is too much for them now. I decided to getting two kittens, so they can play with each other when Nibbler isn't in the mood and while she learns to accept and love them. Normally when I introduce my poor grieving cat to a kitten, they accept them asap and start to mothering them starting with a bath. This is to get them smelling like home vs their old home, shelter, etc. Nibbler fluffed and hissed, so the kittens were put in their 'safe room' for the slow intro. This method can take weeks or months depending on the cat. Patience is a virtue with the slow method, but if done right they will be best buds. This gives Nibbler time to adjust to the kittens and the kittens time to get use to their new home and family. The kittens have a collar on with bells. This is so Nibbler can hear them and I can tell them apart (other then size they are both jet black and can't tell them apart). The boy has a black collar and the girl has a blue collar. They have a few toys (one toy mouse is already missing its tail), a cubby hole, litter box, and food and water (by door but out of the way of it). Scent is very important to cats, so some small towels were placed with the kitten (in a few days, I'll move them where Nibbler can read them) and one of Nibbler's small pillows was put in the kittens safe room. If you think about it, your home is covered in different scents from household, you, dog(s), and your cat(s) that rub everything. The trick here is to mix the kittens scent into this mix to help Nibbler accept them. When I pet Nibbler or the kittens i get as much of their scent on my hands (the cheek and chin are the best spots on the face) then I go to the other kitty and let them read my hands. After they are done, I pet them mixing these cat/kitten scents. Nibbler spent most of the night hanging out by the door of the safe room. The male kitten is more adventurous then his sister and stuck his paw under the door. Nibbler jumped and ran, she returned shortly after. When Nibbler is fed, its by the safe rooms door. Nibbler loves food (especially canned) as her fat belly will tell you. While she's eating, she can smell and hear the little ones on the other side of the door. I also pet her as she eats. My dog and pup are either outside or in another room given the sit or lay with wait commands. They watch my cat be fed first. This is teaching them that the cat is higher ranking in our pack. If anything should happen to them, they have to answer to me, their alpha. Eventually, I'll let Nibbler explore the safe room without the kittens in there. They'll be busy exploring the house. When they do meet eye to eye, I have the kittens in a carrier at first. Safety is the 1st thing to think of for everyone sake. Slowly they will be allowed to share the same room. I'll have them play a game together like chasing a red dot, string, etc to reinforce a positive relationship between them. The boy kitten is warming up faster, and I'll probably use him to get his sister calmer faster. Last night, I got him to lay on my lap and start a roaring purr. Later, the kittens were in their bed and I got both purring loudly ( I got my son to enjoy giving some pets and bonding). It's been years since I've heard a kitten's purr. I know Nibbler is still hurting with her daddy Moose death, but she doesn't seem to be depressed anymore.... kinda curious and slightly ticked (that will pass). During their introduction, Nut Nibbler needs to learn and understand they are not a threat to her or her resources (food, toys, turf, me-love/attention, etc), and in no way am I replacing our beloved Moose. I could never do that, there isn't a cat alive that is like our Moose. Every cat is special in their own way and have a special place in our hearts.

    My new pup Chloe

    Today, I took Copper and Chloe to my dad's place out in the country. I'm trying to teach Chloe that not all car rides are bad. Yesterday, I just took her to the pet store alone. My dad has 2 really stupid sheep, 2 jack-asses, and a steer. There are 3 stray cats have claimed this area too, 2 have been around for years and fairly tame, the 3rd showed up last month. All I can say it's a black long hair cat that runs off when it sees you. Chloe is getting better getting in and out of my SUV with a little help. Like normal Copper was excitedly wining on the way there. He's figured out if I go 1 way it's the vet, if I go the other way, its the pet store or farm. Chloe is already showing signs of being protective of me and she doesn't like men in general. So far the only really aggressive growls and barks have been towards men. With women she all kisses and enjoying pets and treats. This is something that I'll be addressing. I gave my dad some of her treats to get her to stop growling and barking at him on the 2nd attempt to meet. She stopped growling and barking, slowly walked up to my dad and smelled him, gave a few licks then dad gave her a treat and a pet. Chloe might be just 6 months, but she has a loud booming bark, and I wouldn't mess with a dog with her growl. I'm glad she doesn't usually pull on the leash when she does that. I'd be guessing this is the Great Pyrenees since from what I've read they are extremely protective of their pack to the point of giving their life. Our pack is me, Copper, 2 cats and 18 hens....I don't think she noticed the fish, but that wouldn't matter. She would protect everything I have. She'll be meeting my son in a week. I'm hoping it goes well. Chloe did give a soft barks at my step mom and stopped once dad left. After Chloe came up to my step mom smelled her hand and licked it. I walked them for a bit to go potty before going in the house. I normally leave the leash on them in dad's house, so when he opens the door I can grab the dogs. Well Chloe found when she picked up Copper's leash and pulls a little, he follows her lead. Like when I got Copper, my step mom is hoping my dad would get a dog. If they do, I recommend rescues. Chloe is my 4th dog, out of the 4 dogs I've have or had 3 came from the pound. The dog before Copper came from a friend. I happened to be visiting when their puppies (Alaskan malamute, Alaskan Husky, Australian Shepherd mix) were ready to find new homes. At first I said no, but would look at them. I picked each one up and let them smell me then set them down. Then walked about 5 feet away and waited. 2 puppies started walking towards me, a pup that I was interested in and my dog. The puppy I was hoping for walked about half way then turned around and went back to mom. My dog walked over to me, smelled my shoe then peed on it. I looked up to my friend and said I guess I've been claimed, I'll take him. He became the first guardian to my hen flock, Sweet & Sour are from that flock. I gave him 17 years of love. He dug a hole and half buried himself two nights before my birthday where he died. Sweet and Sour were trying to wake him up and were depressed for months. My 1st dog was on the short list at the pound. If she wasn't adopted that day, they'd put her down. She was 5 years then and died at 25. After a bit once my dogs were calm, we (step mom and me) took them out to explore and mark the farm. The donkeys and steer (with hay in his mouth) came out to the gates. Copper is always excited with the donkeys...more so with the sounds they make. He keeps a healthy distance, yet wants to sniff them. One time, he tried to pee on one and was almost bit. He would of been, if I didn't jerk his leash. Chloe looked at the donkeys and sniffed the air. She didn't charge, bark, or do anything to chase or bite them. She seemed to know to not approach them. Then we went over to the steer. When the steer got closer to sniff the dogs, Copper took a quick sniff then left. I guess seeing how huge the steer's nose was and not afraid scared him off. He was as far over away from the steer as the leash allowed. Copper quite literally crapped himself. Chloe wasn't afraid. Her eyes were fearless. The steer and her smelled noses for a while. The steer backed off after she licked his nose. She seems very conformable with large farm animals. Once the steer went back to the barn for more hay, we walked the dogs around to sniff around and mark territory. Copper was smelling some bushes when I noticed his nose was pressing on one of the cat's chest. The long hair calico cat I call Hissy. Surprisingly, she didn't attack him. Just backed off looking rather annoyed. Copper found a vertebrata in another bush and didn't share it with Chloe. After he was done, we took them in to get some water. We chatted for awhile while the dog played or Chloe lead Copper around. After I got my dogs home and a potty break ( a bit of excitement there), they both took a nap. Chloe paws were moving quite a bit as well as sniffing. Sometimes I wonder what do my pets dream of. Copper doesn't have a trace of hound in him (had him DNA tested), but he does sing when other dogs bark at him. Just doesn't sound like a hound. The neighbor's across the street are bad dog owners, no training, allow it to bark the entire time its outdoors. When it escapes, it runs around not coming to its name. It kinda taunts them by running towards them, but when its almost close enough to grab, it darts off. They'll be laughing while trying to catch their dog. I've lost count on how many times its darted in front of a car and almost got hit. On a good day, they catch it in 1 1/2 hours. On a bad day, 4-6 hours. When I got home, I took my dogs to the front yard to do there business (my hens were loose in the backyard and Chloe is still in training with them) when the neighbor dog was let out in its yard. Of coarse its barking like crazy at us and 2 people walking their 2 dogs down the middle of the street. So I'm dealing with a bouncing singing Copper on one leash and a growling load boom barking Chloe on the other. Chloe is 6 months old and 55lbs, I think she'll be around 110lbs when grown. I'll have a better idea once I get results for her DNA test that get here tomorrow for her to take, after that 2-3 weeks get the results. For that little barking dog across the streets sake, it better not even think of getting close to my fence lines when it prancing around the neighborhood. I think Chloe may of ID'd it as a rodent, threat to pack, or at least a trespasser. My front yard fence is 4ft tall chain link and the back yard is 6ft cedar (it's stained). These fences are under a year to 2 years old. I already picked up info for puppy school for her. The pound also gave a booklet full of couples, some things are discounts or things like doggie day camp 1 session, 1/2 hour of private trainer for free

    My new pup Chloe

    Copper and Chloe are becoming inseparable. Last night, they were cuddled up chewing on cow hoofs together, but they got up when I tried to take a picture. They play together all the time, in and outdoors. They have a game where one has a toy or chew item, like hoof, in their mouth where there's lots of bouncing, play bow, licking faces, pawing each other on head, body, and rear. I guess you could call play bites, growls, and barks. They do try to mouthing each other. She just humped Copper and he allowed it. When Chloe gets a little too rough, he gives a somewhat aggressive bark and Chloe stops 99% of the time. I think its his way of saying knock it off. They've had very few disagreements were I had to yell at them. They are in the backyard now playing tug a war or running around At night, Chloe sleeps in the create and Copper with major cat protests, sleeps by me in bed I haven't seen Copper this happy since he relied he found his forever home. Here's a few pics of their paws Copper's front paw Chloe's front paw Chloe's back paw

    I aspect pee accidents with puppies. Sometimes something is scary, or they just can't hold it anymore. I'll start teaching her how to let me know she needs to go out. She doesn't know how to enter or get out of a car, so I get how a car ride would be scary. I'll be working with her on that, first how to get in and out of a car. Once she gets the hang of it, then car ride to a fun place. Since she's going to be a big girl when grown, I think the back would be a great spot... plus have a huge floor mat there.

    How thrilling a day for you and Copper. She looks like she is taking well to her new environment, The peeing is natural for her to mark, she'll grow out that fast as long as your right on her when she starts. Very exciting news for the farm. Im very happy for you.

    Alright Tea Time! This one is a crucial tea in doing living organic soil with success and is one of the first teas you should do after you mix up your soil and plant your plants! The tea I'm talking about is a neem and kelp tea very simple tea just like the alfalfa tea your gonna want Per 5 gallons of water 1 cup neem meal 1/4 cup kelp meal Aerated for 10-12 hours Apply as is no need for dilution Also, this tea is great for both veg and flower cycles I apply this tea once a week for best results Neem meal is a key roll in a well balanced living organic soil and applying the teas will help with control of aphids and gnats as well as help provide some nutrients for the plants. This tea should be utilized to help maintain a healthy balance in the soil food web so nothing can get out of control. The kelp we have covered plenty about its uses and it's rolled in the garden but the main part of this tea is the neem meal! Another thing I have noticed when brewing this tea is you can tell when it's ready by smell and that's kinda hard to explain but early in the brew there isn't a lot of smell and then when the brew is getting close to ready you can start to smell the neem meal a lot more but it's a really good smell. The Topic of Neem will be a discussion in itself for a future post but trust me it's coming because I would love to share the importance of the neem tree with all of you!
