I planted twelve Beauregard sweet potato slips last spring. The vines ended up covering easily 1/3 of the surface of my garden. I dug one hill three or four weeks ago and found huge sweet potatoes. Today I dug three more hills.
The baby isn't here today, since Dad works construction and it was too muddy on-site to work, so she's home with him. I imagine that will happen a lot this winter. I took advantage of the situation to do some garden work.
Bonnie is due to calve in three days, so we have her penned up in the lot away from steep hills and ditches. She isn't very happy about the situation. I'm not sure what condition of milk, or how much milk, to expect out of her this time; her udder and teats are showing a lot of wear and tear. She's no spring chicken, so I hope her calf, sired by the Red Angus bull we had, is another heifer. It would be nice to have two of her offspring around.
