He likes lettuce...
but the green beans are really good, too.
Jack helps me watch for snakes and hawks while we are gardening, points out weeds I need to pull up, and beans that I have missed.
We have been busy indoors, too. This is the week for the chick hatch. We hatch our chicks in the living room because 1. it has the most stable temperature in the house, 2. it is the room I am most frequently in, making it easier to check on things, and 3. we are a little (!) quirky.
That creates a bit of a problem:
Never fear, Jack is here!
He scolds and when necessary, shames the cat,
until she decides to leave abashed.
Jack is the protector and defender of baby chicks!
