First of the Season



   Yes, it has happened...the first snake of the season has made an appearance (and an exit). While cleaning an area of the garden my farm man found a young rat snake (also known as a chicken snake). Needless to say we made sure this nonvenomous nasty will not be able to partake of our fresh eggs. Time to start keeping a careful watch where we stick our fingers and toes...we have seen the first snake of the season.

**So glad he found the snake instead of the snake finding me!!

That's one of the perks of living in the north - not so many of those beasties. :)

Wow, so soon. I do not like snakes, except king snakes. They eat our small northern pacific rattlers. I am so glad you guys got him before he got into mischief.

Here in the mountains we don't usually see snakes until it is very warm outside. There are many rocks and things to hide under, and we are close enough to the woods that they don't need to encoach on our space. :D
