This week’s news is brought to you by our other child, Isla. She talks about the coolest thing that happened this week, but I think it’s the coolest thing that has EVER happened on the farm.
The coolest thing this week was when I saw a bald eagle perched in a tree. (And to make things better it was right here at the farm!) I was bagging salad with my mom and my grandma when dad called mom on the phone. He asked if there was any other bird that was big and black with a white head and a white tail other than a bald eagle. Then mom went crazy and ran out there. We watched it until it flew away. Then I think mom wanted to find the bald eagle? Anyway I went back to bag salad while mom attempted to find the bald eagle. She bushwhacked through the tree line to the neighbors property. Mom says when she came out she was covered in burrs (Like our fuzzy kittens, I’m not sure what they do outside but they are always COVERED in burrs!).
Earlier this week I took these pictures because I was bored. They are of mom and dad weeding.
Isla would prefer if we prioritized taking her on bike rides over weeding. We, on the other hand, are pretty excited we got our field of fall brassicas including cauliflower, kale, cabbage and broccoli weeded! And, from the sound of it, seems like school has started back up right in time for Isla!
