Radishes are up!
Lettuce is up!
And the daughter's attitude is up because she has herself a "new" car.
I've been tilling and planting and checking the trees for buds.
I've come to a decision about my Jersey, Secret. This was suggested by Kelly from Georgia a long time back, and I never gave it any consideration. Yesterday, though, I got to mulling it over and realized Kelly might be have something.
I can't say whether the heifer is bred or not, but I originally bought her because I missed having a Jersey cow on the place, and I wanted to raise one on the bottle as a pet. I didn't really plan to milk her, once she had a calf. At least not any longer than I had to. I'm not a farmer; it would shock me to death if I ever had an animal that made me money these days. Come on, I have a HORSE, for heaven's sake. And a mongrel dog.
So if she isn't bred (I don't know yet if she is or isn't), what's the problem with my simply keeping her around as a pet? I can't think of a single reason. It'll be a little noisy every three weeks for a day or so, when she comes in heat; but otherwise she should be no problem.
Now that's a decision that ought to make anybody happy!
