“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.

What’s in the bucket:  pie apples, winter squash, tomatoes, okra, potatoes.

What’s at market: pie apples, potatoes, tomatoes.  Circle S Beef:  ground beef, roasts and steaks.
