NEW VIDEO ~ EYE TO EYE WITH A PAINTED TURTLE

In case you were wondering, where do turtles go in winter?

The Eastern Painted Turtle is our most common turtle and this beauty was found at Niles Pond, crossing the road heading towards one of several little babbling brooks that flow towards the pond. Perhaps it was planning to hibernate there as it was the last day of October.

Turtles are an ectotherm, which means that their body temperature mirrors the temperature of the surrounding environment, whether pond water or sunlit rock. During the fall they find a comfy spot in the mud at either a pond or stream and burrow in. The Painted Turtle’s metabolism slows dramatically and it won’t usually come up for air until spring, although even during hibernation they require some slight bit of oxygen, which they take in through their skin. Painted Turtles do move around a bit in the mud during the winter but do not travel far and do not move very swiftly.

After seeing different people’s take on bacon wrapped onion rings on the pit i thought I’d try ’em out.

So stupid easy and sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Cut your onions into half inch thick rings and take the outer two bands of onion layer and lay ’em flat.

Then hit ’em up with some of your favorite rub.

Then wrap them with bacon.  Use toothpicks to help keep the bacon in place. Two- three pieces of bacon should do on each onion ring.
