A set of twins March 12 and 2 sets on March 15 has been a lot of fun. Rosemary rejected one of her girls, leaving me to bottle feed little Mia, who I named after Mia Farrow from the movie Rosemary's Baby. Mia finds me in the yard and paws at my leg when she is ready for a bottle. Thankfully, her grandmother kidded the same day she was born, and has plenty of milk to spare. I have some fun swaps going with people who bought herd shares. My latest is receiving baked goods from a chef when he comes to pick up his milk.
I ordered some jumbo quail hatching eggs online, and now have little quail running around the greenhouse along with baby chicks, ducklings, and goslings. My geese are sitting on a growing pile of eggs in the orchard.
I am reading books that help me find the poetry of my existence. I just finished The Dirty Life, and am now reading, 12 X 12.
