Lifestyles editor Monica Orosz and photographer Bob Wojcieszak from the Charleston Daily Mail came to Sassafras Farm this morning to prepare for a feature article about me and my book that will appear in the October 9 issue of the paper. Maia joined us for a tour of the house, as you can see. I took them on a tour of the farm also, and when we stopped by Glory Bee’s field, my lovely cow made a fantastic showing of what an obedient, well-trained milk cow she is by galloping right for me when I called her name. Awesome. I felt like such an accomplished farmer!
OH YES THEN.
I didn’t realize the latch on the gate had somehow gotten loose, and when Glory Bee realized I wasn’t calling her for a milkin’ and there was no big bucket of feed involved in this event, she plowed right out the gate and ran down the road. I went chasing after her, and after some struggling and shenanigans that did nothing to make her look like a well-trained milk cow, I dragged her back to the field by her halter. The photographer was snapping away taking pics of the live farm action.
Always an embarrassment to farmers everywhere
P.S. I broke two nails.
