An evening drive at CVF


Christa & Joycelynn return to drive Jack.

Flashback: Pool at the farm

We filled it in many years ago.

Great to have a mother-daughter helping

Lots of things happen.

Looks like a good hay crop this year

Lots of red clover and trefoil.
Now to get it off without rain.

There are always things to fix on a farm

Great to have handy friends.
Thanks Chris.

Dorothy's bees are buzzing again.

Let's hope for a good honey crop.

Photographs of CVF as summer comes

 A weaned bawling heifer and a steer
 The horses don't know what to think.
 Despite all the rain, the gardens thrives.
And more Wood Ducks on the way.

 Abner has a new hitch for his 6 girls.
I just had to give it a try.

Flashback: 32 years living at CVF

As you can see from this photo, nothing in life stays the same.
One must adapt to what comes along.
The trick is to identify the opportunities when they appear.
