“Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit.”
― Henry Adams
Every now and then someone will ask me what a typical day is like for me, being a farmer. It always makes me smile because there is no typical day. Sometimes that is a great thing, other times it isn’t.
A friend and customer tells me she tastes our love in our food. On days like yesterday, I wonder if she is going to taste all the cussing.
It started with a group of calves getting in the garden. I went out to help Curtis run them out, and a cow busted through the wrong paddock gate and led the whole herd through. My dog took off after two big coyotes and didn’t come back – I thought she was a goner. I let my two big girls into the alley so I could feed them, and forgot I left the gate open to the back forty, so they took off.
It was lunchtime before I found my dog and got my horses rounded up. All other plans I had for the morning were shot.
