Just a few things.
1. I haven't harvested a single leaf of lettuce. Oh, I planted quite a bit. And the plants are there. There is a little bunny coming 'round and nibbling on it. Each leaf is nibbled to the end as the next one comes up. I'm still in mourning for Cocoa the Doberman who lost her battle with old age. She kept the yard free of varmits and raskily rabbits in a way no other of our dog family can. I miss you Cocoa.
2. Step son and I have arranged to purchase a half a cow from a local rancher. I'm pretty stoked about the whole thing. The freezer needs some cleaning out, so we'll be eating its contents until the new meat comes.
I know I've said this many times, but you deserve to take the time to stand there and enjoy this. Smell the herbs. What do they make you think of? How do you feel? Feel how soft and nice they are. I was remembering a series of summer days, sitting in the grass in front of the house on the Homeplace on my grandparents farm. Making clover neckless until there were mountains of them. Later as it started to get dark, laying back in the piles of clover neckless with my cousins, watching bats fly from the barn to the big tree and back to the barn and back to the big tree.
