SUMMERTIME
Sure is busy here on the farm! I've made sweet pickles and dill pickles, strawberry jam and preserves, blackberry jelly, peach jam and preserves; I've frozen corn, green beans, black raspberries, blackberries, blueberries,and peach pies; I've canned tomato juice and chili sauce. Sure would have been nice if I'd cleaned out and organized the freezer before I started putting all this new stuff in there :-)

Besides food, there's always a lot going on with animals. We milk cows every morning and evening and chase them when they're not where they're supposed to be. This is a dairy farm, after all! We are milking 20 cows right now, down from 36 this winter. Those no longer being milked are out frolicking in the pasture, awaiting the birth of their baby calves.

Wild turkeys, snakes, baby birds, cats, and dogs have been doing their share of frolicking, also, not to mention all the bugs and other creepy-crawly things.

So much going on ... so little time to write it all down. Hope you're enjoying your summertime!!
