I’m at the computer while also looking out at an almost full moon half shrouded in clouds and a silhouette of pine trees. It is beautiful!
The season is winding down quite nicely for us. Josh actually has time now to be a normal person–a person that has leisure time. It takes some getting used to–we didn’t know what to do at first, but we are pretty happy about late mornings and slow living. We have one more farmers’ market and then we will just be down to a few more harvests for restaurants and grocery stores (although Josh has plans for an Ashland winter buying club).
As if we couldn’t rest for just a minute, we took home a three month old pup the other night–a purebred yellow lab we named Barley. Here’s a pic. He’s sweet, cute and mellow. We like him a lot. Everett seems to be taking a liking to him too, especially when they go outside and play together. Luna, our farm’s namesake, is being a good sport…slowly warming up to him. Right now, he is a nuisance to her, but she’s an old curmudgeon of a dog, so I think she’ll find a warm spot in her heart for him.
Here’s a nice pic of the spot behind the barn where Josh recently moved our laying hens (we’ve got 150 new laying hen chicks in the brooder right now, but that’s for another post! :))
