Being an older car, the cost to repair the dent damage would be more than the car is worth. 😕 So, I'll be driving a dented car for awhile. But all this has taken a bunch of time because of Michigan's silly no-fault insurance law. So, to get reimbursed for even just the repair work to make it driveable again, I have to chase all around Robin Hood's barn for estimates and talk to insurance people and may have to go to small claims court. Sigh.
I've also been occupied with the homesteading work and was tickled to harvest my first nectarine - so juicy (downright dribbly) and sweet!
Green beans are producing well, and the tomatoes are ripening up. Yay! Salad greens were attacked by some teeny bugs that really bug me. I harvested the least messed up ones, washed them thoroughly, and have some drying for powdering for smoothies.
Progress has been slowly made on the "Critter Corner" where we plan to raise quail and meat rabbits while also hoping to let the rabbits forage somewhat.

|This is the first quail cage which will be divided into three parts to house three "clutches" - five hens and one rooster.|
|This is the cage for two mama rabbits which still needs a divider and more zip ties for sturdiness.|
The cages will hang from the ceiling while also being hooked to the wall so they won't swing.
|And, when you spill some blobs of paint on the floor, used your non-existent art skills to try to make them look like rabbits. 😊|
