As many of you may know, we had a little hiccup in plans the last 6 months. Louis was scheduled to have knee replacement surgery at the end of November last year but the night before it was scheduled he dropped a piece of wood on his shin (same leg he was to have surgery on) and it created a large, 2 inch long, deep gouge, removing several layers of skin. The doctor did not want to do the surgery because of the potential for infection. It was a blow and put a wrench in our plans for this farm year. He had to wait until it completely healed before he could have his operation which he did on April 3rd! He is healing well, walking with a cane and able to ride the tractor. So we are going to carry on.
Thank you to all who have supported us over the years and for the upcoming season.
This year has been strange. Well, what year isn’t? Super-hot in the spring, drought and now a little rain – if you can call 100 drops rain! We have had more little frogs and moles roaming the land. Gorgeous sunsets and cloud formations. And many new faces checking out our bounty AND new critters taking up residence at the farm!
The first week of July, new goslings hatched to 2 mothers who shared the incubating duties. When one goose departed the eggs for water or food and to stretch her legs a little, the other girl goose would take over for a while. Often both of them were cozy in the igloo sharing the coverage of the eggs. Pretty darn cute. As a result we have 4 new goslings that provide great entertainment and cuteness factor.
