planted some turtles in the garden

Recommended Posts

Accidentally left the gate open on the garden a couple nights ago and woke in the morning to find a snapping turtle laying her eggs in my garden :eek:.  So it appears that in about 90 days if all goes well that I will have a batch of snapping turtles :crazy:.   Darn momma turtle had to plant them right in front of my gate too, she couldn't even plant in one of the rows :angry:.

Ha...."planted"some painted in my lawn this year. Kind of new to growing them. Apparently mine are now about 60 days away from sprouting. Read briefly about their cultivation and one source said the may try to stay in the nest until next year.... maybe biennials? Anyone else grow them that can shed some more info?

I don't know about the how or when but last year late summer someone saw a couple baby snappers crawling across the sidewalk in front of the house.  A niece ended up pulling a couple/three dozen out of a hole that was mostly under a piece of sidewalk paver.  The thing that I found amazing was how every one of them immediately started heading directly to the swamp across the yard and street.  I ended picking them up and taking them to the swamp.  Now if even a third of them come back to my yard like spawning salmon I could have a mess on my hands.

Let me know how the painted turtle thing goes. If they hatch and stick around a while, I may want to get a couple from you for my kids. The were begging for a turtle at petsmart (they call it the zoo) the other day.

 

Jameson, good luck with the snappers.

The turtles have fruited.  :grin:

Found a small saucer shaped hole in the ground that the baby turtles must of crawled through within the last 48 hours.  Garden year 2015 was a good one for the tomatoes, sunflowers, and turtles.  :cool:

    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
