Farm Love Friday and the Winners!!

 Oh my! This past week has been so fruitful and so cold! We finally managed to get some more of the corn picked! Usually we have it out by Thanksgiving! So thankful that it is still standing and that we are able to get through the frozen, muddy fields.  When I was walking through the pasture, the calves all had to follow me around and help me check out one of the new babies. I feel like I am continually holding my breath during this frigid weather. So afraid one of the little ones will get sick. They look so shaggy and warm with their winter coat. It is surprisingly soft. Once they satisfy their curiosity with me, they line up along the pasture fence to watch the corn picker go past. They can barely see it above the brush and stalks. I noticed the ice covered mountain and head back to the house to bring up some firewood and check on the twins who continually find something to butt heads about! They run and play and fuss and butt heads like any brother and sister would. The new calf at the barn has been their latest point of contention!
  February 18th  marked the two year anniversary of Sew and Sow Farm blog. I have so enjoyed sharing my sewing and farming adventures with each and every one of you! Farm life can be very lonely and isolating. You, my friends, make each and every day better!  I look forward to another fun year!
