“The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”

Some Days

Some days are not fit for man nor beast.

A cold, rainy day in May is one such day.
I've washed and stored away my winter work jacket,
but working in my sweatshirt and spring jacket right now...
well, it's down right cold!
And wet.

This was the scene around the farm yesterday...

everyone stayed under shelter.

As for the runner ducks...
they love the rain!

On my way up the driveway from the pond, 
I spied something unusual in the top of one of our trees.
Can you see that little bird in the middle of this photo?

It was actually no small bird, but a rather large one.
Let's zoom in a bit...

A female turkey had roosted about 50 (at least)
feet off the ground in the top of this tree.
That was a rather strange sight!

And that, my friends was seriously the most interesting thing about
yesterday's cold, rainy day.
Today it is to be sunny and in the low 60's.
And the good news is... today is brick-laying day for the shed!!


fresh out of the garden...
lettuce and kale...
salad... it's what's for dinner!
