“If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?”
— Steven Wright
Still struggling with the heat and flies with our cows. This poor cow is totally blind. It happened over night – she came down with pink eye. We just got lucky to get her in the corral because she was bouncing off fences – it was so pitiful. We have the fly mask on her now, and we are hoping she will regain some sight soon. Water and feed nearby, so she can just stay here until her eyes get better.
Farm News: The carrots and beets are going topless this week. Curtis got a little greedy with the mower *not that there were any weeds in the row*. We got a good shower after I wrote the blog last week – probably 2 inches of rain. Very thankful for that, (possibly contributing to the weeds in the row).
What’s in the bucket: Topless carrots and beets, kale or savoy cabbage, sweet onions, summer squash or cucumbers, OKRA, cherry tomatoes, fennel.
What’s at Main Street Farmer’s Market: red, white and blue potatoes, sweet onions, cherry tomatoes, savoy cabbage. Circle S Beef: many cuts of beef for sale at market. Sign up for beef packages or quarters.
