Our winter was not so cold this year and we both made it through with not so much as a cold. I had dreaded my "new" job,
Now we're a month into spring; the early garden seeds have been planted, irises, foxglove, daisies, and columbine are in bloom; the third flock of chickens for the new year have been started. We've sent calves to market and vaccinated cows and small calves.
There was a rash of cattle rustling in our county during the winter, which made all the farmers around us watchful and uneasy. The farmer decided to use branding on the cattle as a means of identification. (I hate having to be a part of this.)
There are a lot of new baby calves.
