7/30/12 – 27th day of Middle Summer

Animals: Several fatalities today. One chick and a hen from each coop were dead this afternoon. More importantly we lost Loki. I wasn’t surprised by the chick dying, it had been pretty weak looking when I moved it to the brooder. Unfortunately, the hens and the bunny died due to too much heat and too little water. Oddly enough the escaped rooster is still fine and has been tricked back into captivity.

Garden: Legume plot received 100 gallons of water. Ran out of time, but I need to pick beans and soybeans tomorrow. Shelled the ears of Mated Chief and treated the ears of Mandan Bride with vinegar without oil. I don’t think the oil/vinegar treatment worked on the potatoes, so I plan on starting to dehydrate them Alton Brown style.

Weather: hot, dry, slightly breezy. No rain.
