SUMMER IS ALMOST OVER!!!!!

OH MY GOODNESS, WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO?  WE HAVE BEEN SO BUSY WITH THE FARM THAT THE TIME HAS FLOWN BY.  THE GARDEN IS ALMOST GONE AND THE BLUEBERRIES ARE GONE BUT JUST WHEN YOU THINK THERE IS NOTHING HAPPENING AT THE FARM, GUESS WHAT, THERE IS.  THE GRAPES ARE BEAUTIFUL THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.  WE CUT THEM BACK IN EARLY SPRING AND NOW THEY ARE LUSH AND GREEN AND FULL OF BEAUTIFUL CLUSTERS OF GRAPES.  CAN’T WAIT TO EAT GRAPES AND MAKE JELLY.

ALSO THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR WHEN WE START HAVING BABY CALVES.  WE HAVE A TOTAL OF SEVEN ALREADY.  THE FIRST ONE WAS BORN ON JULY 25TH AND WE HAVE BEEN HAVING THEM EVER SINCE.  WE GO DOWN AND CHECK ON THE COWS  SEVERAL TIMES A DAY AND THE JOY OF SEEING THE BABIES IS SO AMAZING.  WE WENT DOWN THE OTHER DAY AND A MAMA WAS HAVING HER BABY.  THAT WAS THE MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.  IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE EVER SEEN ONE OF OUR COWS GIVING BIRTH AND I WAS SO MOVED BY THE EXPERIENCE.

OUR FAMILY IS SO THANKFUL FOR ALL THE FARM HAS GIVEN US AND ALL THE EXPERIENCES WE HAVE HAD LIVING ON THE FARM.  IT HAS RULY BEEN AN AMAZING 5 YEARS AND WEARE STILL LEARNING EVERY DAY.
