Time to Rise and Shine and Butt Heads!
Each morning is more beautiful than the last this October! Taken from the little orchard hill:, jet-trails, weedy fence-line, and one young apple tree.
The cows have been unusually frisky in the mornings lately, too. While I was photographing the sunrise, they were playing butt-head. As I walked down toward the barn for a new vantage point they figured it was breakfast time and they raced toward me joyously, leaping and kicking up their heels, with surprisingly unbovine-like grace. Someday I hope to get a photo of them leaping like that, but usually I am too focused on not getting run over by them to take pictures.
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
