Brrrrrr!

Winter is officially here! My pumpkin patch, tomato, and pepper plants are goners. I covered up all my Fall veggies last night since it got down to 20* Ice chipping the critter's waters has started, which sucks. This morning my little one thought it snowed and when I told her it was frost she was annoyed. I guess she's ready for snow. I'm not, I like the sun. I could not get warm yesterday and finally checked the temp in the house. One of my darling, precious, little, angels had turned the thermostat down. I'm thinking a touch it and die note might keep my children from jacking with it, probably not ;)

The hubs had a birthday Saturday. His mom got him a trail camera. I was going to get the exact same one for him, but he would have griped if I spent our money on it (he's a tight wad) but since his mom bought it he loves it and it is really AWESOME!!! I think I've had more fun with it than him. We didn't get it set up until Monday evening but that night we got a pic of a coyote and our resident woodchuck. Last night we got a picture of a bird of some sort (it's blurry), the woodchuck, three deer, and two raccoons.

I really want to get a picture of the mountain lion. But I don't think corn, nuts, and apples are favorite dishes of those guys. I might need to put some meat out to get some good predator pics. I also would like to get two more cameras 1 for the goat barn and 1 for the chicken pen. Although I don't think I would be able to sleep if I knew what was creeping around my babies at night.

    1. LOL!!!! Yesterday I thought the coyote was a deer that looked like a kangaroo. The hubs and I laugh like crazy when I call to tell him what's on the SD card. It's been fun ☺

  4. Too bad you can't monitor it and have a remote control shotgun mounted under the camera. Too many varmits running around there.

    1. We do have a lot of varmits out there. We always have but I think it's worse since we started feeding the deer. The only thing I would have wanted to shoot so far is the coyote and the raccoons

  5. Kelly,

    Having critter cams are great. I wouldn't however put any meat out for these animals because this invites them to stay around your farm, and target your animals.

    1. I hear ya. It's way to close to my goats and my little dogs run around out there everyday. I'm hoping the deer being out there lure in the mountain lion just so I can get a picture. Then it can mosey on out of here!
