Now your bringing me back to my childhood; nothing like eating fried bream - the best part is crunching on the tail! Nice swans, I like the lake - it's got to be very peacful to be able to sit by the lake and watch the swans.
This area is infested with thistle. We have woods and 8 old home/farmsites on the ranch to much debris to mechanically spray. Hand spraying is out of the question.
We have great grass this year, so the cows aren't eating the thistle so much. Wait till late July and August I have a bunch of old cows that will gobble up the thistle.
