My plants are growing tomatoes! The pepper plants bloomed, but I have not seen any peppers yet. I hope they grow so I can make salsa with them.
Every time a stormy looking cloud appears The Rancher helps me cover my container garden with pallets. It’s heartwarming as he is not a tomato or spinach eater.
Over the weekend we had a slight haying delay. Last night we had .10″ of rain. We are so close to being done, so very close.
Last week, The Rancher saw some cattle that looked out of place. He sent me to make sure they were not our cattle in the neighbor’s pasture. So, I went to check things out and was lucky enough to see this guy! My Mom was impressed I thought to grab my camera as I hurried out the door. I was glad the suspicious cattle were yearling steers; we don’t have any of those. More eagle pictures to come.
Sunday morning J and I went for a drive to check water. Fritz got to go along and burn off some energy. Just in case you are wondering, we did not stage this pose. I was just lucky enough to capture it.
I want to wish my God-mother and Aunt a very Happy Birthday! She is a special lady that wears many hats: Farm wife, Mom to five, Marine Mom, 30+ year Nurse and Grandma (I think this is her favorite). Last winter we started e-mailing back and forth and have stayed in close contact. I always enjoy her Farm wife wit and family updates.
