Gravity Fed Duck Emulsion

Hello Friends!

As I sit here this morning getting my tires rotated, I have a few moments to blog about things and enjoy the view.

Journaling on Brother’s Campfire is therapeutic for me. I am busy busy with a lot on my plate and have been unable to post every day as I would prefer.

Today will be just as busy and I will be late for work due to my temporary crown breaking and exposing my brocken tooth. It is a little ouch.

Waiting for my permenant. This photo is from the other day.

The day for me has just begun, so let me tell you about yesterday.

Well, Kinda.

Yesterday started with an epic breakfast of oatmeal, strawberries and peaches prepared by my beloved.

I have found though trial and error that when I have a full stomach and a cup of coffee I make really good decisions. When I do not, I get angry and hungry, or rather, hangry.

I started out by watering my birds, mowing the lawn, and weeding the garden.

This is pretty much the mundane that I do every day off when I am not adventuring.

While I was working, I was met by the local french cuisine expert, Rebecca Sherrow. A practical woman with extensive education, we discussed the finer points of gardening in the alkaline clay environment we call home.

Rebecca was perceptive to observe my primitive utilization of buckets to water my plants with nutrient rich duck water. It is time consuming and exhausting.

50 pounds of feed = 35 pounds of wet, pastey waste

It was time for a more efficient method of delivery. I opted for a free, well rinsed chemical bucket. The chemicals contained previously were biodegradable.

I attached a spigot and 100 feet of 1/2 inch hose and I am now the proud owner of a gravity fed, duck emulsion spreader!

Like Minecraft, but for real!

I must say I have never been more eggcited to have ducks fowling the water and reducing my bill.

12 gallons for one tomato was a little excessive, but oh well. I love my garden experience.

After completing this project, I took my children to the home of the world renowned blogger Herb Thiel so I could take my Beloved on a date; after all, we have been married 16 years. We opted for the Olive Garden to celebrate.

It was good and unpronouncable.

We… Are bargain shoppers. After our wonderful meal, we went to a thrift store. After trying a lot of clothing on to appease my Beloved, I found a really neat coffee cup for my collection.

It appears to be handcrafted and the walls are over a quarter inch thick for maximizing heat retention.

Well, that’s about it for this post, friends. I am thinking about starting a new storyline for the Campfire. Do you all have any suggestions?
