More plans to come as we gradually improve and expand the camp facilities.
On the animal side, we have ten geese, and hatched out 47 new chicks for next year's egg supply. The egg ministry has gone well this year. We were getting 18-30 eggs per day and provided eggs- and roosters- for multiple families in the area. Next year should also be a big year for the egg ministry!
We still have 12 sheep and they helped in grass maintenance this year when they ran out of grass in their pasture. We currently have three Pyrenees dogs and our grandaddy Pockets. They keep the place safe for visitors and from local wildlife. Hummingbirds are feeding at our feeders and gaining weight for their upcoming migration south. We have a blue heron that migrates through twice a year, stopping in at the pond below the cabin. We caught sight of some baby wild turkeys in June and turtles are still passing through. Lizards, skinks and salamanders still roam here to the delight of anyone who sees them.
We still have nesting hawks, owls and occasionally an eagle will pass through, much to my pet birds' consternation.
We anticipate having the historical society conduct tours to bring people here to see where Jess and Ruth Wilson lived. Some things have changed, as would have if Jess and Ruth were still here, but most things remain the same or improved. Come see us soon!
