I think we've found some tomato seeds to save. This plant is incredibly stubborn and very hearty. It isn't doing very well at this point, but really I didn't expect it to be alive at all at this point given the number of frosts it's taken. Anyhow, there's a few last tomatoes holding on despite the cold weather and frosts, and it's kinda fun to come out and see. That bright red tomato under the right side of the plant, that one is probably going to be what I pick for seed saving.
Speaking of keeping the wind off during the winter, the Lady of the House has been working on training the turkeys to come to their coop at night. We haven't been starting to shut them in yet, just getting them used to getting in there, and it being good, safe, and where food is. We figure if we do that every night for a while and only shut them in before things get really bad they won't avoid getting shut in. At least for a while. That reminds me, I really need to get some roosting bars up in that coop ASAP if that's what we're working on with them. For turkeys apparently 2x4s or 2x6s on their sides is going to be the best option for them. Apparently by having the flat space to roost it will reduce winter cold injuries. Especially relevant since this seems like it's going to be a cold winter and we don't have that many turkeys. We're hoping to increase our turkey flock before the winter, but we'll see how that goes.
Last thing for the day, but not the last view of them, we have some new chickens. A friend of a friend recently had a kid and has been having trouble keeping up with the chickens which I sympathize with very strongly. Due to that his 6 hens needed to find a new home, and we were fortunate to have that new home be with us. Right now the six of them are together in the chicken coop, and we haven't brought the black chicken in with them yet. We want to let them be here long enough to make sure they won't pass anything by surprise to her through interaction, not that we expect that to happen. Better safe than sorry in cases of anything potentially infectious. As you can see, this first shot is a really bad photo, but hopefully we'll be able to get better photos once they're out and about in a few weeks. For now we're going to have to get what we can photo wise, and enjoy the fact that they've been with us for only a few days and we have 7 eggs!
