“The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.”
~ Joel Salatin, Folks, This Ain’t Normal: A Farmer’s Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World
If you look closely at the top photo you’ll see a new baby calf taking her very first steps, under the watchful eye of mum.
Here she is a few steps later, looking for her first drink of milk.
It was a very busy day at the farm yesterday. A new calf at breakfast time. Lots of psychic work and writing in the heat of the day.
New garden beds ready for our autumn crops in the afternoon.
We’ve added three extra herb and vegetable beds, and put in a passionfruit trellis too.
And then last night as I was making dinner, a big green tree-frog came to visit, landing on our kitchen window with a loud thump.
All in all, a lovely and very productive day.
Sending lots of love your way, Nicole xx

What did the frog have to say for himself? Beautiful baby cow and mama. My heart aches for such an environment.
Oh yeah such lovely photos, farm life always seems so peaceful but common sense tells me it is not always the case
Beautiful photos of new life and love Nicole. You are surrounded by such beauty, enjoy it all. 🙂
Such a beautiful environment. I’m so happy that the Universe has made sure that you are where you need to be! 😊
