    Monday evening, I just happened to glance at the box and saw the last two young bluebirds leave. Now they are in the trees getting fed by the parents until they learn which caterpillars taste the best.

    Looking toward St Briavels, England, near the Wye Valley. Unfortunately I skipped packing my DSLR and only had my phone for pics.

    Couple of days late on this one...many years ago there were "special" tips for spray cans that you could get. These tips changed the spray cone/shape. There were a variety of these tips that provided different levels/types of control. They work like those multi-pattern spray handles for a garden hose...but they were individual tips, not one adjustable tip.
    Regardless of the tools available, there are some incredible street artists.

    This dislodged something in my memory of seeing one of the earlier graffiti artists pulling out a box that contained a collection of different tips. I thought they were just clean tips to switch out when one is clogged up, but I bet it was exactly what you describe here. Thanks.

    Very nice Jorn. A few questions come come to mind:

    Has the stream had fish in the past, and if so, what happened to them?

    Will the ones you just introduced be self-sustaining (assuming no apocalyptic droughts) or will you have to restock in a short while?

    Best of luck to the new crop.

    Stream currently has fish in it - mainly black-side dace (originally thought red-side as those were what I grew up with but don’t occur in NYS) a few sculpin (a small bottom feeding fish) and the occasional brown trout. However, after our winter work on the flow, sediment and channel/pool structure, we have more fish in the stream than last year. We also have better water levels.

    The goal over the long run is help with the health of the stream overall, and fish are part of that. The main stream, called the Roeliff-Jansen Kill, is slowly cleaning up and recovering from many years of agricultural (and otherwise) pollution. Most of our fish (at least the ones that don’t get eaten) will end up down there. I plan to restock a small number of fish twice a year and see what happens. Hopefully it will mean that when the water is high enough, we’ll get more fish coming upstream from the RJK to visit.

    Neat.

    Some searching lead me to this: https://www.roeliffjansenhs.org/

    which is quite interesting.

    Julia Brandi is a “down the road” neighbor. She has a great house along the Roeliff Jansen. Built in the late 1700’s I think. I see her often, driving her Massey Ferguson to and from several nice pieces of land along the RJK.

    I figured that even though you haven't really been there that long, you might well know at least some of the folks associated with the Historical Society.

    Regarding newcomers, my sister's lived in Maine for at least 20 years and her joke is that in some places up there even first generation residents (who were by definition born there) are still considered "from away" because their parents and grandparents weren't from Maine.

    It helps one understand why some places (like Japan) find themselves in a pickle as the birth rate declines and their society inexorably ages. Over long periods of time it can be a real challenge for insular societies to retain their vitality.

    Nice. We’re on our second summer with apple trees (Granny Smith and Braeburn) and they’re starting to bear some fruit. I’m told it takes 3-4 years to really get edible apples but it’s cool to see regardless.

    Trying to keep up with Jorn’s harvest. It’s amazing what a screen will do, in terms of preventing the birds from having first dibs.
