Piglets love milk! They are still quite young so I water down their cows milk. We don’t want runny bottoms.
Heidi is down from Chicago for a few days ‘down on the farm’ and took these photos for us last evening.
I hope that Instagram video opened for you because it is so funny watching me try to walk amongst that gaggle.
Today I hope to get all my work done at The Mill in quick smart time. ( Thank you for reminding me to give you the link – good idea to put it in our cottage industry page too). Then Heidi and I will start work in the Kitchen’s Garden. I am putting in rows of edible flowers! I think that might look really pretty from the Coop. Especially a long row of chives. I love chives.
I am creating an email list for The Mill so I can keep in touch with my bakers and then I am going to start a mill blog which will be just as much about the farming of the grains as the milking. That should be fun! ( plus they will pay me to blog – just imagine) so if you want to stay in The Mill Loop, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will keep you informed- though not too often as I hate being hounded in my own ever-crowded inbox!!
Ok! Those chickens make such a racket in the morning! Louder than an alarm clock!
Poppy is still limping very badly. But is eating and drinking well. I am going to take her temperature this morning. I am sure a heavy belly full of babies is not helping. It is not unusual for these large animals to pull a muscle – aspirin and rest usually help. And no more fighting for food.
Right! Again! I had better get out there and milk my cow. They are loving all this good grass. I dreamed last night that John went out and mowed my pastures while I was at work. It was an awful dream. Awful!
Don’t forget to get on the Janie’s Mill list.
The lilacs are blooming and the scent drifting into the house is heavenly.
