I really wish I could share pictures of K. and C., who are having their first farm springtime, complete with baby goats, dam building in the creek, their own gardens, finding nests of newly hatched chicks, catching toads and salamanders, eating salads made with wild greens they collect themselves, but that would violate their privacy. Still, I think I can give you at least a sense of the Hun-like decimation of food that goes on in my house with six little guys – they all stuck their hands in over the jambalaya to show how a pan the size of Idaho makes just over one meal:
Meanwhile the general population is expanding – goats, chicks and now cows:
Meet Dulce du Leche (in black) who is our new house cow. Well, right now she’s our house calf, but eventually she’ll be our family milk cow. She comes from wonderful friends who are doing amazing things with breeding for sustainable milk. It will be two years before we get a drop from her, but we’re very excited. Isn’t she a beautiful girl?
Meanwhile, the usual things are blooming like crazy – I’d show you more but the pix are taking forever to load, so that’s why I’m posting so little – too much fun stuff going on!
How about you? What’s new in your neck of the woods?
