With the recent sunny weather, I had no desire to be behind a laptop or indoors at all for that matter. Plus, there has been a flurry of new activities happening both on and off the farm. With the rain falling, just in time to end the drought and potential brush fire conditions, I’m happy […]

There were large families with children who are attending as part of their 4H program. It was relatively quiet. I signed in, pulled out my notebook and took a […]
