Rain Cows

We are getting lots of rain in Vermont the past 24 hours.  The brooks, streams and rivers are full and moving swiftly.  I hope these heavy rains do not re-damage the areas destroyed by Hurricane Irene last summer.

The grass here is growing as it rains and my eggplant, brussel sprouts and potatoes are growing by the minute.

The cows have been moved to a very lush field next to a stream and a waterfall.

The rain does not deter the mission of each and every cow:  graze, graze, graze.

The calves are practicing running up and down the hills and investigating new places under the trees and bushes.  Every field is a new adventure for the growing group of calves.

They are lucky that they can look forward to a nice long drink of warm milk after a long day playing in the cool rain.

Hope the weather is behaving in your area.


  1. We'd love to have some rain. It's not a drought here yet, but the late corn could certainly use a drink!!

  2. We crossed the Connecticut River on the 4th and were shocked to see it at the lowest point in 2-3 years.

    I guess as we are downstream from you, this will soon change. We had a nice soaking rain the night of July 3, but that's been it.
