We had our first taste of home-grown Jersey meat last night (a/k/a Buster) and it was nothing short of phenomenal! I did nothing more than fry it up in my cast iron pan. The only seasoning I put on it was fresh-ground pepper. Oh, it was so, so, so good. I don’t think we’ll raise another breed of cow from now on.
Finally, the summer garden is in. It took us a long time to get it fenced and almost as long to set and stake the tomato cages. I planted about 20 tomato plants, mostly our favorite, Cherokee Purple, but I also put in a few Roma plants and another heirloom called the “Mortgage Lifter.”
I have a few more varieties I need to source and get in over the next week. The weather is going to be perfect, but I wish there was some rain in the forecast. I think this is going to be the best garden ever.
We didn’t get the sheep moved this weekend. That will have to wait until Monday evening. The good news is: I’m feeling much, much better. My mouth is no longer sore, nor is my face. Hopefully this week I’ll be able to function normally and catch up on what needs to get done around here.
Until later …
