Marilla Moo our faithful milk cow is now across the lane with her friends. Or I should say her kin folk! She has her daughter, son, and her grandson, little Bubba. They are one big happy family. They have all the grass and water they need and most importantly, they have each other. Cows really thrive in a herd, haven't you heard? They have a strong herding instinct. When you separate them, they get scared and cry out. Oftentimes we would hear our milk cow call out to her family across the lane and I could not wait until she was free to that greener pasture!
No more milk until December. She deserves her vacation! In December she will calve again. It is always a time of excitement when you welcome a new member of the farm! I just don't know what I will do without my milk, yogurt, butter, and cheese! All farm fresh! So now I may have to find another source.
Here is our overgrown mess of a garden, weeding has been in full swing again! You can see our shack in the back!
