Highlight of my morning was being able to watch the birth of tiny Praying Mantis babies who spent all winter developing in their rock-hard cocoon attached to one of the top header boards of my adobe chicken coop’s window. About 1/3″ long, they evidently chew their way out attached to a gossamer thread thinner than a hair. Then they wiggle their head, tail and tiny legs free, climb up the thread and disperse.
And — some plants –

Lots more work to do – corn and butternut squash next, still need to check and repair drip lines, etc.
