Mama duck will probably sit on the nest for another day to see who else hatches. But I bet if you check the chickencam on Saturday or Sunday you’ll see her new brood taking a swim in the plastic trash can lid we use as a baby-safe wading pool.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
