a hot day on the farm
today was a true summer day. it started with our mama hen hatching 4 beautiful baby chicks (and counting). followed by harvesting of lettuce, pea shoots, and young onions for tomorrow's markets. i finally got the lavender in the ground, along with rosemary, thyme, oregano, dill, and basil for our raised beds.
rose (the piglet) decided to come along on the day's chores. she is quite sure of her status among the pack of dogs here on the farm. and i love seeing her run her little legs as fast as she is able to keep up with them all. the one problem we have is her fear of the mighty and powerful creek (or crick as i try to say down here). i may need to build the rest of the little bridge for her so her dainty feet don't have to get too cold and wet. she is ever the lady.
now for a cold beer and feet up. rose and i are simply beat.
