This Mama goose has been patiently waiting on this clutch of eggs for days now. Geese are VERY protective of their eggs and will certainly hiss and bite you if you get too close! So … we will keep our distance and patiently wait for goslings. Hopefully we have a photo of that soon.
Isn’t it amazing how well she blends in with her surroundings? Nature is amazing!
As a kid, the summer time meant lots of chores and busy days filled with changing water on crops and keeping an eye on the sprinkler. The sprinkler had to be adjusted, stopped and started manually. I would take turns with dad in the middle of the night, jumping on the 4 wheeler and changing water to make sure that our sprinkler didn’t run across the highway. Now, with the advancements in technology farming has become just as sophisticated as any other technological job out there. You can monitor sprinklers from the comfort of your home, you can program your tractor to drive in a straight line while applying an exact amount of fertilizer per square foot.

Here’s a peek in to what some of us have been up to this week! We’re busy busy in the wheat field and probably will be for the next couple of weeks. We look forward to this time of year as the whole family gets involved helping to bring the crops in from the field! Joseph is riding with Grandpa (Mr. May) on the combine and is loving every minute.

On a day like today when nothing sounds better than a dip in the pond it only seemed fitting to visit the ducks and geese. As we head over to the pond we spot an egg a duck dropped on their way to the water. The ducks and geese make their way to the edge to greet us from the far side of the pond. The geese make a loud “HONK HONK” noise and the ducks a more reserved “meck meck meck” as if to express their excitement with visitors. “Come in! Sit down! Can we get you some… water?” Or maybe it’s more of a demanding “THROW US SOME BREAD LADY!” We throw in pieces of bread crumbs … The larger geese make it known that they are first to the rations while the ducks just hope something is thrown in their vicinity so they can avoid being “nipped” by George or Gracie – the two large Geese. We throw pieces toward the back so the less aggressive get a few bites too. Even a few fish skim the surface to snag a nibble.

Today we are planting the corn maze! Did you know that May Farms has a corn maze every fall just minutes from Denver in Byers, Colorado? This will be the 8th year for May Farms Fall Festival, Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze. You can see it from the interstate (on the South side of I-70) so next time you drive by make sure to give us a honk or a wave if we’re out working in the corn field, pumpkin patch or garden. We can’t wait to have you visit this fall!
Gardening in Colorado can be tricky. Watering schedules, fertilizer, protecting from frost, avoiding pests. When it comes to bugs though, not all bugs are bad. Some bugs can help your fruits, vegetables and flowers THRIVE. Whether you are a new gardner or you have been gardening for years you want to make sure you know how to attract the RIGHT kind of bugs to your garden. Here is an article we found that will help you do just that.
