A Little More Nature
One of our wild turkeys, one that Fritz refers to as "the rogue" because it is always alone and never with the flock; our last sight of them was in December when we were decorating the inside/outside Christmas tree and saw them walking across the property just below the big flower garden. I feel certain that the big feather I found is from this bird. Fritz was at the dining table in the kitchen, happened to look up and called me immediately when he saw the turkey on its way toward the new part of the vegetable garden . . .
. . . on its way past the asparagus bed (uphill of the bird) and the Brussels sprout/winter squash
P.S. Nice turkey.
I'd be happy to get just one good tomato from our garden...it's turning out to be a "green tomato summer" here in PDX.
Maybe that turkey will fatten himself up on your garden veggies and present himself to you for ritual sacrifice in November.
