Unfortunately, Mr. Big Duck paid a price for his curiosity…he was so drawn to the females that he would not go into his house at night. (We had been locking him up with the big chickens in their mobile coop.) One morning we went out and he had disappeared…except for 3 feathers. Our neighbor says it was most likely a fox.

This artichoke plant survived the winter next to the south side of the house with a cover of dirt and straw. It came back strong and produced 5 heads! More were started from seed this year and transplanted…they’re growing great!
