|Starting cow handling training early|
Weather forecast and it looks as if Thursday will be the next chilly one. Never got below forty here in Montgomery County last night, probably thanks to a thick blanket of fog that rolled in some time after I went to bed.
|I'm gonna get her|
Sure was clear at 10 though, with stars like beacons. Man were they bright! Even down near the horizon they were utterly brilliant. Spent some time on the stair landing just looking....and hoping that it wouldn't freeze.
|Ma....I can't crawl yet and she won't come over here....ma........|
Every week without frost has its good points for nearly everyone. Corn and soy beans are still maturing across much of the nation. Here in the valley we saw a lot of crops yesterday that would benefit from a few more weeks of growing season to be their best. A hard frost would have turned a lot of grain into silage fit only for cow feed....
|I'll try keyboarding instead|
Spent yesterday frantically busy between visiting our longtime veterinarian's customer picnic, which was about the best it has ever been, what with great food, and wonderful friends, and lots and lots of serious farm discussion, catching up, and Peggy sharing. Thanks, Midvale for hosting this annual get together for area farm folks.....
And then there was the bringing in of the house plants...always a marathon!....and the picking of a lot of pinkish and whitish and greenish tomatoes. The table covered with them is now joined with two big bowls full. Guess there will need to be another picking Thursday afternoon....and family members and friend NW, I need to share with you. Does anybody want to come and get some?
|Ooohhhh....so that's what happens when you press control alt delete.|
The yard looks so bare without the geraniums everywhere.....
The boss got a pretty special birthday gift from our boy yesterday too. I won't go into detail, but it is something he has always wanted.....and deer season starts real soon.
|No, not this one but......|
