A Piggyback Plant - Random Farm Pictures
Another cool morning. Oh how I love them! It is 70° which is a little warmer but at least it isn't 80°. Still no further rain.
I tilled part of the garden yesterday and it is still fairly moist down 6 inches or so. I should have to water for a few days.
I didn't get any trimming done. I hope to tackle that today. I am not milking.
I think I have talked DH into buying a baby Jersey heifer to put on Willow...if the farm has any. I am calling or e-mailing today. They are the cheese company farm that the state of Missouri visited with guns drawn ordering them to shut down a 30-year raw milk cheese company and they were ordered to sell all inventory! The litigation is ongoing. There had never been a complaint against the company in all those years. I will let you know how the baby calf situation goes. It seems wasteful to me not to let Willow raise a second calf.
I have mentioned before that I can't bear to toss out good plants....even though I should sometimes. Well when I moved a pot of salvia to the stump bed, I noticed a strange plant in with it....it wasn't any weed I was familiar with so I left it and planted the entire pot. It was an eggplant. I am not sure what variety.
Now I remember, the salvia was a piggyback too. The pot was for the Golden Jubilee agastache.
I don't really need anymore eggplant. I don't know what to do with what I have!
I do want to try this one though.

When the Grands are here I give them my camera and they snap away to their heart's content.....they go places I don't!
This is Willow and this year's baby.
and this is Willow's 2-year old daughter with her new baby, a bull calf. I hadn't seen it until this photo,
The above post is a week old now, but is workable as today's post. I still have not tried the new eggplant.
What's new is the weather has warmed up again and no rain. I am watering a few things.........again.
