buckwheat and pigeons
« on: May 24, 2009, 08:47:12 PM »
i plowed up a huge area and planted buckwheat.  i waited for it to come up.  i went out and checked.  no much happening.  today, i found the reason.  the pigeons are eating the seeds that are left and i suspect the plants as they come up.

perhaps i will post pictures of the post hunt.  nasty critters.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

No it's all dark meat and a nip of bitter to it, but it's still good eating.  When eating a pigeon you go for the heart (bigger than a chickens) and the breast and toss the rest, just like you would with a quail.
