There's a light at the end of the tunnel...

I am so tired of blogging about the "s-word" and the "w-word" that I decided that I would post a more delightful blog from Minnesota!  Let's think spring!  This picture is from my garden last spring, and it gives me hope that after almost 4 solid months with the "s-word" we will once again see green grass, beautiful flowers and sunshine. 

These past few weeks at the farm have been long and tiresome.  Jon and I are working towards a number of goals for this year, but as a result we are required to put in lots of extra hours in at the farm.  Some days we get so wrapped up in the work that we start to forget what it is that we are working for,....much like our battle with the "w-word".  We get so busy working with the "s-word" that we forget that we are working towards spring!  Nothing like looking through some pictures from last spring to remind us of that.  So as we continue to work towards our goals for our cows and ourselves...as well as battling the eliments...we are reminded: there's a light at the end of the tunnel!


  1. I'm with you! We're so ready for spring here in Northeast Ohio also. The sun was shinning most of yesterday which was a welcome change. Spring always provides a fresh new outlook on the year ahead. Hope it's a good one for the dairy industry!

  2. We share your feelings. This winter has been unbelievably exhausting. Back in December I changed the wallpaper on my cellphone to a picture of a cow and her newborn calf out in the pasture; the little bit of green grass and blue sky remind me that this is Minnesota, not Siberia.

  3. Sadie: I love it! Definitely not Siberia for the forecast next wk!


I write this blog to share my passion for my cows and farming, please be respectful of that. I reserve the right to delete those comments which portray hate, call names, and are out right disrespectful. If you have an honest question, I will respond, to explain what we do on our farm, why we do it and how we do it. Please read with an open mind. My time to blog is short, as most of our days are spent caring for our beloved cows. Thank you!
