Awaiting A New Arrival


Julia and Arne, our WWOOFers from Cologne, Germany, have been hoping that Mabel (our Jersey heifer) would give birth a little ahead of schedule.   Mabel is due February 4, but you never know about timing with this sort of thing and much to everyone's dismay, Julia and Arne are returning home before the scheduled date of birth.  To say that all of us here are anxious about the new arrival would be an understatement.

There is no weather extreme enough to keep Julia away from spending time with all the two (and four) legged friends.

The hay rake waits for warmer days.

Not everyone enjoys a frolic in the snow.



They may be off to Germany, but stay tuned for upcoming posts on German comfort food (perfect for a winters night) and other projects that include Julia and Arne.  And, of course, we will keep you posted on the status of Mabel's upcoming delivery.
