  • Big, crazy, toddler-sized faith

    When my youngest brother was little he loved to be tossed into the swimming pool.
    We’d pick him up and throw him underhand, like lobbing a softball, into the deep end and watch him sink and then pop his head up from the surface, look for the nearest side of the pool and swim toward it.

  • Trunk damage can girdle trees

    The farm looks like a storm hit recently but it’s really just my husband’s new deer deterrent technique.  
    It seems to be working.
    In the past we have forgone the Irish Spring soap, human hair and coyote urine for more reliable barriers.  Tomato cages, tobacco stakes, wire, spiral plastic trunk wrap, and, yes, an occasional arrangement of lawn chairs have created distance between rutting and browsing deer.  
    This year does not seem as bad as year’s past.
