Happy Birthday Ben! Your Poppies are OPEN!




Don't you just find Poppies so CHEERFUL! Thanks Linda for sending the seeds. These are especially fun for me because they always open on Ben's Birthday. Just a few hours late this year. Oh well, I still luv 'em!

Here's how they looked at the beginning of last month!

In other news, I just finished posting a new page on my company website called brand strategy.

Frost in Late May :-( Note to Self: Cover Tomatos Until June


Frost hit the Tomato plants hard this morning. The temperature got to 30 degrees last night. We covered with newspaper and soaked down everything good. This morning at 5:30 I resoaked the entire garden. The frost was all over the place already.

The peppers are a maybe.. everything else will survive. Beans and squash are popping out of the ground today.

The dark is a little frost damage on the potatoes.
Next year the clear plastic hoop will move to cover the tomatoes until June.

Baby Calf, Just Born, Tries to Stand on its Wobbly Legs!

video
Our dog Lucky was barking at something across the street. When I looked out the window and saw a car had pulled over to look at the cows, I saw a brand new calf! The people in the car said a calf was just born.

Slowly I walked up to the fence and sure enough this was a brand new calf. Click the arrow on the picture above to watch a one minute video of it trying to stand for the very first time!!

This was one of the first times that I've noticed a cow have her calf right next to the fence!
