When are fawns born? White-tail does are pregnant approximately 200 days. This pregnant doe got me to wondering, when are fawns born?

I’m taking the next step in Robin’s Outdoors. The first issue of the newsletter will be sent out soon. I’ll be publishing the newsletter only once a month so I won’t fill your inbox. I’m still working out the details in my mind. It won’t just a list of links to blog entries. Yes, I’ll link to an entry now and then but it will be much more.
Robin's Outdoors will send out its first monthly newsletter soon. You may subscribe by following the link in this graphic. Robin's Outdoors Newsletter.

Tunnels everywhere, girdled trees, damage in the high tunnel - the voles are out of control.
Meadow vole damage is wide spread this year. They've made tunnels (highways) everywhere. I've found nests under melting snow, in the wood pile, garden shed.

I just registered for early access to Canva for Work. Join the waiting list!

Sit spots have grown in popularity over the last decade as we work to regrow our connection to the land. Many of us have always gone to sit spots for years.

There are few days in a year that someone fresh isn't carried into the house.
We have fresh food daily on our homestead. With only a few days exception the hens lay daily, even in winter. Fresh food daily - a luxury I work for.

There's always something more to learn outdoors.
A swimming American bittern? Is that really a thing? Do bitterns swim? That's not a question I ever asked myself but I now know the answer anyway.

It's not your typical food blog. Food prep starts in the soil at my house.
Late April high tunnel progress. It's been a slow spring and I wasn't in a rush to do a lot of work that might be killed by the frigid over night cold.

I was nervous about my first white water rafting trip. Jessie Herling, co-manager along with her husband Tom, visited with me the night before and helped put my mind at ease. I had such a great time on the river that I returned the following week to raft again. US Rafting is excellent! I'm hooked and looking forward to my next trip with them this summer.
