The turkeys that is. To be quite precise, the turkeys deciding that the bean patch on the slope was the ideal location for a dust bath. We shall see how elderly firewood works as mulch, I placed sections in between each row and around each squash plant. The theory being that they can’t push aside the chunks of wood. The uncertain factor is how, or if, the insect population which came with the wood will affect the plants. They didn’t, thankfully, get the pole beans; and I only had to replant some of the yellow wax beans. So, I suppose I can look at it as a way of ensuring a longer harvest.
It is very nice that they were able to raise a successful brood; but there are other places, plenty of them, where they can get a good dust bath. I wonder how young wild turkey tastes….
