<quoted text>Yes,turkeys really do "gobble". It ranges from a long strangled gargle to a short series of true "gobbles".Wild turkey toms pretty much limit gobbling to the spring mating season. Domestic birds will do so thru the year,like crowing roosters. Scarf would be a more apt description....
Are you sure? Or could it be a euphanism for the sound? I mean do turkeys think they're gobbleing? Or something else. They may just have trouble crowing. I raised some Cornish crosses once and these large chickens couldn't crow either, instead they made a sound like something from Jurassic park. Size is everything I guess.
Anyway we all have something to crow about now and then. But personally, I would not eat like a bird, I'd rather gobble it up.
Rather wolfish, to be sure. But, not to be confused with the Wolf fish. Whose appetite I hear is also rather voracious.

We have a homeless family living in the woods nearby. I don't know how they do it with a child. Anyway I stopped by to give them some new blankets and pillows. They're doing okay,or as good as can be expected.
Some people I will never understand. My neighbors friend won a lottery. So he doesn't want to pay taxes, right. Pulling down 478K a year he buys land. That he has to pay taxes on. why not fill a food bank instead? I sure would.
Me too.

But I'd also buy a chunk of land, I'm not gonna lie. It's a lifelong dream of mine to own and occupy a tiny 2-room log cabin in the woods, with solar power, a meadow for gardening, and my own clean crick for potables. Sounds like heaven.

Ahh, well. Giving isn't about what we want people to have, it's about them getting what they want.
JMO.

Maybe for Christmas, it'll be blankets and pillows, but we had so much fun with the wine...and they were so happy to get it!!

Morning all, I hope everyone had a better Thanksgiving than I did.
I'm not going to get into it, but let's say my family kinda irked me more than a little.

Suggestion: Rather than a creek to rely on for water,construct a cistern and catch rainwater. Another option is a well or spring. Creeks have several problems. The least of which is pollution. Animal waste,wild and domestic,from upstream sources. Agriculural waste,fertilizers/insecticides runoff. And the ever constant unreliability due to going dry during summer/drought.

You do know that rain water is not 'clean' right? The water molecules condense on any particulate in the atmosphere to form the droplets. They also pick up toxins such as sulfur, and various bacteria and ameboes.
As to drought, well, if it isn't raining enough to fill a stream, then you cisterns going to be dry too.
How about a well? Wind driven of course, since you're so close to the watershed it needn't be deep.

Okay, enjoy the wine and candies and count the dust motes.
How fun, might need more than one bottle though.

Creeks are lots of fun. I love a creek--but still, a well or cistern is great too.
