Default Around the back yard this spring

We had a late spring this year with lots of rain & late snow. Farmers are finally getting around to cutting hay. We had more snow in April than usual. I finally got a small garden out. It's doing pretty good now but needs rain. Only put out a third of what I normally do. Getting too old & crippled up to take care of a big garden. The rows are only 20 yards long. Put out 3 dozen tomato plants for myself & two dozen for the lady next door. Two rows of corn & 3 1/2 rows of beans & a dozen hot banana pepper plants. The peppers are producing good. Been pulling the peppers off & throwing them down just to keep them producing. Beans are blooming good now. .The baby tree swallows bailed out a few days ago & the eastern blue birds took over the box next day. The resident red tail hawks have two babies this year. First time that's ever happened. One of the babies has a problem. One of it's legs hangs useless but it's still coping pretty well. It can pick up a dead starling pretty well. Wish I could do something to help but that's out of the question. The papa hawk is 12 years old this spring. Don't know much about his girlfriend. First time I saw them together he was 4 years old. ...It appears Granny, the old resident deer is pregnant again. She doesn't allow the two youngsters to bum with her now. She only comes home in the daytime occasionally. ...I'll attach a few pictures. They may not be very good. They all look blurry to me. I have difficulty seeing to type any more. Only Muffin looks good to me. She's a sweetheart. ...Paul H
