What a rainy week. The fields are overflowing with water, the tractor drivers are all cranky due to minimal planting getting accomplished and it still continues to rain. I managed to escape the house for a quick tour of the back 40 one evening. It looked like Noah’s Ark had unloaded directly into our irrigation pond! Murray wasn’t too impressed with all these creatures in his kingdom. Although I didn’t understand all of their conversation, it’s safe to assume the dog and the birds were discussing territorial rights of the pond. So far the Trumpeter Swans seem to have won as I can still spot them in the pond periodically. To view photos of other animal guests at the farm, you can visit our “Gallery.”
