I actually had all three of my kids here this past weekend, which hasn’t happened in a few years! Ross is out of the Navy now, and living at home this summer after six years on a fast attack submarine. He’ll be starting at WVU in Morgantown this fall. Morgan is home from her second year at WVU, working again this summer as the 4-H ambassador for neighboring Clay County. Weston was home for the weekend–he’s currently stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

    Here she comes.

    Mother Duck (see her duckling story here and here) has been doing a fantastic job with her eleven ducklings (four of her own, seven adopted).

    What it looks like when I’m headed for the barn:

    Cart loaded with goat milker, cow milker, egg basket, and baby bottles.

    I spend a couple of hours every morning with milking, other barn chores, and handling the milk and washing equipment etc. Less time in the evenings because I let the calves do the evening cow milking and just … Continued…

    What it looks like when I’m getting ready to skim cream.

    Milking two cows is like a milk tidal wave.

    Brad Rice from Charleston WCHS-TV channel 8’s “Traveling West Virginia” segment was at the farm on Saturday to do a piece about the workshops!
