    Swimming cows paddling on down the river? What next? Cows jumping over the moon, maybe?

    Hope 2019 treats you and your family well, Peg--and the cows too when they get there.

    Seed catalogues are piling into the mailbox. Lots of beautiful pictures and we get excited thinking of what to add to the crops we usually plant. Renewal and hopes and loads of plans. That is the best part of being a farmer.
    The cycle has begun again. New year and new hopes.

    Hello Peg! I love that your cows took a swim across the river.

    Hi Agate <waving with Peter>.

    Linda, I have a gorgeous catalog from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and another from Johnny’s Selected Seeds. I want more than a person could possibly plant!

    We buy most seeds from Johnny’s. We knew the original owner...he sold it to the employees eventually. Nice company. Baker creek’s catalogue is staring at me from the table. Exquisite.

    Ferocious claws and teeth there. Any cat is a force to be reckoned with.

    Interesting that in that video about cat rescues the rescuers always used a big sturdy bag to pour the cat into. It's really the only way to keep a panicky cat from getting unpleasant.

    I love hearing about farming, raising farm animals. Seems like all is right in the world when you work on the land.

    I remember the excitement of ordering chicks. Post office would call and say, “Your chicks are ready” then I would pick them up and hear them cheaping from the lobby, take them home, put them in a large cage with nearby heat lamp for several days, gradually harden them with increased outdoor time, and then finally their first night in the first rate coop DH Built.

    In the day, the kids wold open the coop up and spend hours watching them, playing by them. The wire enclosure kept them from running away from the coop area.

    Idyllic! There was no illness yet.

    Peg and Linda lead such interesting lives. I think it is wonderful that the neighbor brought Peg's cows home along with some other animals.

    Now Linda and her hubby can start deciding what to plant this Spring. Everything fresh and new.

    Sunshine, you have good memories.

    Hope all of you have a good day. Where's Howie?

    Cool

    I'm right here Virginia, eating peanut butter crackers, watching TV, and keeping an eye on the forum. Thank you for asking.

    We took MIL out to lunch. I had a cup of tea while they had chowder. Then I had the same meal I had the day this all started: baked cod w buttered crumbs, jalapeño polenta, roasted colorful carrots and a baked tomato slice. I took a little of each of these and put them on my bread plate. It was a delicious meal. Still too much. It’s over 5 hours later and I still can’t eat but it was so good and I have leftovers.
