This is my favorite summer or hot weather snack. This would also be good as a desert, too. All you need is some yogurt, and thawed raspberries. If you do use fresh ones, crush them a little, so that you will get some juice without having to put sugar on them. Then mix it together, find a good book and curl up in your favorite spot!
As you know, we spent Saturday cleaning out the shed on the Horse Barn, that the milk cow’s yearling calf will live in during the winter and early spring.
It was deep – up past my knee! I’d say that it was two and a half to almost three feet deep in some places. Despite that we finished just after quarter to six in the evening. It’s amazing how tightly packed it gets in the corners. For the last three or hours of the cleaning, I took a pitchfork and dug out the corners and then forked it into the bucket.
Then after that was done, Dad hauled a few bucket loads of sawdust and spread it in the shed for the first layer of bedding.
Yesterday afternoon, Dad started baling the “wet” hay. Despite being lighter than the previous bales, we got less by about twenty. I forgot until I heard it, how much I like the sound of the baler and how much I had missed it, though I am glad to be almost done with the hay. The picture above was not loaded last night, it’s the last load we hauled from that field until now, we just never unloaded it.
When I was reviewing last night, the pictures I took yesterday, I was looking at that field and thinking how long ago that we cut it and how nicely the grass was coming back. We were done with it by the twenty-fourth of July. That seems so long ago, but it’s really only a month a half or so.
