The monster and I managed to do a lot of chores on the farm today. We added more to the new chicken pen. The poles are in concrete but with the windy storms around here, the roof will also need cable anchors to the fence. Plenty of other cleanup work was done as well as entertaining the chickens with hip-hop music.

The butternut squash are doing great with 3″ fruits already on the vines. We learned how to control the pollination so we can make sure to have pure seed for next season -squash are famous for cross-breeding.
