Farming...

leaves little time for computers and blogging.  We hit the ground running with calving season January 15th and it feels like we haven't stopped since.  12 calves and 14 lambs born on the farm this winter in addition to the breeding herd and flock, the 10 pigs we raised and numerous poultry we have/had this year makes for a hefty feed bill and challenging to get inside to write.  The girls like to keep track of how many animals we have at any given time and at the peak this year we were over 150.  As with every fall, the numbers are lowering leaving slightly more time to settle in earlier, have more family meals and post about how happy I am that irrigation season is over:) 

 Despite a broken arm Asha still helps break the main irrigation line down to get in one more run before the ditch is turned off.  It takes more than a cast to keep a farm girl down.
