|Captain Sigg and Maggie enthralled by something...probably food!|
I know this post is long overdue...but let me tell you, it has been quite a busy summer! The birth of 5 new calves was pretty much the easiest part, and took little to no work from us. As Jonathan says, "prenatal care is the most important thing we can do, as the mama usually takes care of the rest herself."
The Barre Farmers market has been wonderful to be part of on Wednesdays, and has certainly solidified my love for baking breads, pickling, and processing pestos. The two of us have really done a 180* in terms of schedules. Here I am doing morning chores, after Jonathan finishes milking, puttering around finding this and that to keep me occupied while he heads off to Barre City School to teach kiddos how to garden, harvest and cook up some sweet meals. It's these slow mornings, where a third cup of coffee is a must, some yoga outside on the porch is an option and eating breakfast doesn't really have to happen until 11, that I will miss dearly once "back to school" graces us.
