These are a couple of turkey vultures that were watching over the farm the other morning.
And here are the pea “chicks”. They are as tall as their adoptive mother now.
I am learning the hard way how much Tom does on the farm. I normally do my share of the cleaning, cooking and chores, but he has been doing the more physical labor here. But since he hurt his knee, now I am doing nearly everything. This includes moving 50# bags of feed into the feed shed, moving 5 gallon container of drinking water, moving the 40# wood pellets bags, taking out the garbage and moving firewood. Of course he had already found, cut and split this firewood so my contribution is minimal in comparison. But I am completely exhausted. Plus I am working long shifts at the hospital. I am really hoping his knee gets better.
