July 22nd, 2014

Chewy sure is living up to his name. He was moaning when Megan went to the barn to feed him this morning and after his belly was full. He’s noisier than either of his larger cousins but his mother has left him totally in our care. She was quite a handful in the milking parlor though, kicking the pail of colostrum and generally being Heidi.

Megan, Beth, and Shea spent the entire day in the garden trellising tomatoes, pulling off the never-ending squash bugs, and harvesting. It is a process that won’t give any of us a break. Megan’s hands were stained black from the tomato pollen and she’ll have a job getting it off. I cut quilting squares for Grandma’s sewing class all afternoon and Grandpa went into town to run some errands. Shea’s pie was demolished within an hour of coming out of the oven last night so she made two more this evening. I can smell them baking now and am just about to head down to nab a slice before it disappears again.
