Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Today at the Farm

I checked Polecat Creek Farm a few hours earlier than usual today. As I drove through the hayfield about 3:00 PM, gazillions of grasshoppers leaped up from the crispy field and bounced off Ol' Blue's windshield. I continued driving across the field, through the trees, and into another field.

When I returned, a flock of turkeys were gobbling up the grasshoppers.

At least they could find something to eat in the field.

It's like a safari! I have seen one turkey, but not a flock. They are eating crickets too! Bonus!!
