Farm Friday - Snake in the Grass

Put my garden in a few weeks ago.

Weed-wacked it. Tilled it. Raked it. Mulched it. Planted it. Watered it.

All the greenery at the back is strawberries. They're coming in like gangbusters this year.
I buy my plants already started. FAR too lazy to start them from seed. Don't judge. And the place I get them was out of some of what I needed, so I'll need to make another trip. Right now I've got parsley, chives, tomatoes, red peppers, and cukes.
I need to put in a bunch more peppers and cukes, plus some basil, mint, and scallions. I'm also going to plant carrots in pots, and try growing potatoes in a trash can like I've seen on the internet.
What else. Oh, I'm going to grow some corn and some sweet potatoes over by the chicken run, and feed them directly to the chickens as they come in.
Also going to try growing a whole mess of pumpkins this year.

Anyway, when we were raking and tilling and what-not, I noticed Cindy was watching something in the grass. So of course we all went over to investigate. It was a snake. Just a harmless black snake, but it was a doozy. Cool, huh?

Doesn't that just make you wanna go start a garden?
