Trending (at the Farm)

And for today's post we're just going to see what sorts of things are trending with the farmers right now!  Without further ado and whole lotta todo - here we go!

Some Music We Are Currently Enjoying

Not Our First Goat Rodeo featuring Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile, Stewart Duncan and Aoife O'Donovon

The song we're linking here is call "The Trappings"

Something We Are Getting Tired Of

Broilers that want us to "walk them around the building just one more time" before they go in at 9:30 at night while the mosquitos are biting and the farmers are tired.

A Book I Hope to Re-Read Soon

Barbara Hambly's Dragonsbane.  I just completed another Hambly book that reminded me how much I liked her writing and Dragonsbane would be my favorite of hers.  This comes on the heals of reading Elvenbane by Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey.  So, it's a "bane' thing, I guess.

A Game We Are Currently Enjoying Playing

No.  Nothing new here.  We're still playing Wingspan. And enjoying having the European expansion now.

A Recent Meal That Was REALLY Good

Chicken, snow peas, garlic scapes, summer squash, zucchini (all from the farm) and a piece of Tammy bread with real butter (from Hansen's) and rice (uh.. despite rumors that we have had enough rain to grow rice, we still have not tried to do that).

A Picture We Both Enjoy
From the base of the Latourell Falls in Oregon.  After a warm day, this looks very nice to us right now.

An Accomplishment We Are Really Hoping to Achieve Soon
We want to get it ALL done. 

Ok.  Being realistic now.  We'd both be pretty pleased if we could get all of the tomatoes trellised - for example.

Because we want to harvest some of THESE!
Something We Think Will Begin Very Soon and We'll Be Happy When It Does

The beginning of Lilypalooza on the farm.
