We had another casualty on Goat Rope Farm this week. Frida, an elderly female turkey, was killed by some kind of varmint whilst engaged in another effort to hatch some eggs. Frida took the whole reproduction thing very seriously, although she only had one live chick (turkey puppy?) in her time here despite many efforts...and an owl got it. May she be reborn in the Pure Land of Amida Buddha.
We remember her and many other humans and animals that have passed this weekend.
See y'all again Tuesday. I hear it might actually not rain for a day or two this weekend and I have hot dates planned with fences, gardens and such.
