My son and I putting in new flower beds in front of the house. He loves digging in the dirt. I'm excited about the stone border my brother-in-law showed me how to build!
Helping move the cows across the road... and back a few days later. It was a lot of fun- moving the cows is invigorating!
Taking care of "baby cow". She's doing very well. Joel recommended we put a few eggs in each bottle to help prevent diarrhea (often a problem with bottle babies)- this worked like a charm! Baby Cow is currently in the corral with a mother cow who's calf died a few days ago- hopefully this mother will accept Baby Cow and we will no longer have to bottle feed her!

I went to the farmer's market for the first time last night as a vendor! This is the Polyface & Friends table where I sold my handcrafted soap, lip balm, and laundry detergent.
We also had our first processing day of the season on Thursday, which went well! Honestly, it's not a bad job at all- it's so lovely being outdoors, enjoying the breeze, and spending time with family and friends while you work. I look forward to doing it again!
This afternoon I'll be making a few batches of soap and washing eggs. I love farm life.
