The BIG thing is just that, it is big. In many ways. While i am not going to say what it is just yet, don't worry, once we get it going we will let y'all know.
Now for the pond. We have finally got water in it after duck season this year. So while this year was alot better than last year it was still a bit of a flop. I did not get to go to any big water this year. But we did manage to kill a few ducks.
One of the big things that happened this season was our newest duck hunter in our group. My little princess Molly. She went with me a couple times this year and seems to love it. She points out birds coming in (although at 2 1/2 years old she points out any bird and is still learning what ducks look like.) and she thinks it is hilarious when i shoot.
We have also put up a few wood duck boxes around the pond. We are now trying to find something that we can plant without having to drain the pond so we do not have the same problems that we did last time.

This little Jewel started the Briary River Dutch Oven craze. It has been slightly modified over the years but is still as easy as ever. You can use fresh or canned filling that is entirely up to you. We started off with canned then evolved to fresh as we grew the fresh ingredients.

I am going to give you a small recipe for a five quart cast iron pot. Purlow must be cooked in a cast iron pot Lodge Logic Dutch Oven, 5qt. (Google Affiliate Ad). If it’s not cooked in cast iron then it is just chicken-n-rice. If you decide to cook purlow once, you will try it again. The more you cook purlow, you will learn that it is a subjective dish. You can substitute any small wild game you like for the chicken. You can cook larger or smaller pots based on how many people you want to feed. And lastly you have to cook it often – the more you cook it the better you get at it. This dish has been called by many spellings it is also often spelled Pilaf, or Pilau.

It seems there is no end to our buzzard luck. Joe got the tractor running again Thursday. Friday morning it rained, so we couldn’t get anything done, that’s not a complaint by the way, the rain is a blessing. Friday afternoon it cleared off, and Tracy was able to get most of Mama’s grass cut. When he tried to crank the tractor today to finish the grass cutting, it was acting up again.
