Population Explosion

New Neighbors In The Hood
We've been staying busy this late winter around the farm. I got a great comment about my use of the terminology "the farm" in reference to our vintage farmstead, and it answered my question about how long it would take before someone called me out on it. In my defense, I commented on my use of the term in like my second or third blog post saying "...hereinafter refered to in this blog as "The Farm". I know it is NOT a farm, but it's located in farm country, it is our blog, and we'll call it what we want to thank you very much." That however was a post from last year, and looking back on that comment it sounds rather arrogant, but I still wanna call it the farm. Please indulge this city slicker closet farmer.

I've been meaning to comment on the population explosion around here. The number of calves dotting the corn fields amazes me. The number of the little cows seems to outnumber the big ones, so either it's a very good year, or I don't know a darn thing about cows...which is true of the latter, and may be true of the former.
