Literally every calf ends up sleeping in the boot of the cow car.
This where I feed the cows their hay in the winter, so it is nice and soft.
But not dry – nothing is dry. It poured down with rain again last night.
The wet is endless this year. And the cold. I am feeling hunched.
My organic farmer/friend/ tenant/mill owner Harold says his absolute last good date to plant the organic corn seed in the ground is June 10th. Our seeds are not chemically treated so they rot much faster than the non organic seeds. And our corn products – the polenta and cornmeals and corn-flours are big sellers from the mill. Surely it will dry up soon.
My field is very swampy, very low and very wet. The cows pasture is amazing though!
I think it might warm up today. Let’s see.
hmm – the weather image will not upload and I have run out of time. I have to be up by 5.30 or I don’t get to the mill on time. It looks like it will warm up today – with showers.
