Wildlife helping tidbit. We have had about half a dozen little birdies lately knock themselves out. "didn't your Momma say not to fly into closed windows?" πŸ˜ƒ
πŸ•Š

Yes, it's winter, but birds hitting windows is a year round issue. Coming into feeders & winter bird baths means close proximity to homes. If you've ever heard a bird hit a window you know they hit HARD. If they survive the impact they often can be knocked out cold. So it's important not to just leave the critter laying there where it can be picked up by a predator (often a cat) or succumb to outside temperatures. Just gently pick the bird up and place it in the center of a "doughnut" shaped cloth or paper towel that is placed inside a cardboard box. The box should just have a few air holes and a cover. Keep one handy if you have a lot of window collisions.

Birds have air sacs (that work similar to our lungs) all along the sides of their body. The air sacs need to expand and contract freely. If the bird is left laying on its side, the bird can't breathe comfortably- thus why you place them upright in a doughnut for support.

So if you find a bird that is laying on its side, place it in the center of a "doughnut". Place the box in a warm, dark, quiet spot for the bird to recover. After a short while in the box, the bird may be OK to just fly up and away. You can do a short test flight in your bathroom. If the bird cannot fly after 1-2 hours call your nearest Wild Bird Rehabiltator. See photos below on how to make a doughnut to keep a bird upright. (Photos from Help Wild Birds FB page)

Rural Loudoun is a treasure that people enjoy visiting, and living in, and there is a better way to address the traffic than more traffic lights and 4 laning with cement barriers north of White’s Ferry.

https://loudounnow.com/2018/09/27/rt-15-meeting-brings-out-communitys-divisions/

We trust that telling Loudoun farmers to move to "Wyoming" if they want to live on a farm is not a common point of view among our follow Loudouners.

Rest assured, we're not going anywhere. We'll be here to provide Loudoun consumers with locally raised meat, locally grown veggies, wool, honey, wine, fruit and countless other products.

So yes, we'll leave Wyoming to our friends in the Wyoming Farm Bureau.

Hi Just FYI on Sky Lanterns (chinese flying candle lanterns at night) that you let go in the air. Today we found around 25 in our vineyard, a couple in our creek. and some were in trees. Guess they were launched nearby, and not mad at anyone, but wanted to share. Additionally, these have metal and are not biodegradable plus they could have caused a major fire if they landed on the house and especially with the dry corn field next door. Thankfully our vines are green but if they had been dormant this could have been really sad. Please beware using candle lit lanterns. 😟

Update: Upon further review, as fun and mystical as Sky Lanterns are, they are illegal in VA unless tethered (not sure how we feel about a fire kite either πŸ˜‰) but if you do ever have the chance to send Sky Lanterns to heaven, please do so in a legal area and use safe, biogradable materials that will not harm our crops, streams, rivers, and wild life. There are alternative fun things to do as well but spoiler alert: what goes up, must come down πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸ‘¨β€πŸš’πŸ’πŸΈπŸˆπŸ“πŸŒ²πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸŒ·πŸ”₯

A little update on the vineyard. Things are growing well! These vines (close in) are Vidal Blanc vines and the vines farther out- are Merlot. We had a beetle scare- but they rebounded wonderfully. They will only be 3 months old July 28th. Some of the sleeves will be coming off soon. Jan Williams Kernan

Wire Clip Demo

So if you are starting a vineyard, or just interested- wanted to keep sharing the steps along the way as we do them. The planting of vines, bamboo guides, the first guide wires and a sleeve on each baby vine have been completed. Our next step is to attach a wire clip to secure the bamboo guide poles to the lowest wire. Ben Sedlins of Short Hill Winegrowers is our advisor/manager/mentor for Blue Frog Vineyard. Here is Ben giving a tutorial on how to attach the clips. Monday 6/19 Ben will have his team out to help get the guides clipped.
