A Good Monday Morning to Ya All

Where to start. . .

We have been very busy this past week. The garden is half done, potato leaves are now making an appearance. I bought a plant at the farm store that turned out to have aphids, and now my box has to be washed out.

The banny rooster died. Not sure why. I went out in the afternoon to check on their water, then later that evening he was dead. Good neighbor said that's why he doesn't like them. They just seem to fall over dead. The hen is with the black bannies now.

Cauliflower, cabbage, peas, and spinach are all starting to emerge.

We have two half sized telephone poles sticking 8 feet in the air, in the corners of the back field. We should get the fencing up sometime this week, and allow the cows out. Our hay supplier is out, we have to get those girls out there soon. And still no baby. But Eddie isn't liking her udder touched now. Got kicked for the first time yesterday. Wasn't as painful as I thought it might be. Though I do have two big bruises, one on each thigh.

There is a fox taking the good neighbor's chicks in the middle of the day. Hopefully we can take care of the problem soon.

We have began separating Uma and Mama during the day. With food prices the way they are, and the fact Uma is eating more and more graze, we thought it would be ok. Besides I read about it in all those books, it shouldn't hurt anyone. It annoys Mama, but she is really happy to see us come milking time. We put them back together at night.

There is more, but I have to run off now and do some chores. Until tomorrow,
