The orphaned kittens followed us on our post dinner walk. It is good we noticed them or they would have been dinner for the coyotes.
We started picking this morning at 8:00. Such a time of hard work and nervous anticipation. The fields in front of my house are turning whiter by the hour.
I also have a new partner in The Cotton Shedd, my daughter, Summer Grace. She is amazingly creative and the most organized person I know. She is bringing some new ideas with her. We are putting the last touches on our studio this afternoon so it will be just right for this Saturday's wreath class. As always we want our guests to be transported from the busy world and be enveloped in the simple steady rhythm of the farm.
