Surprise!

I am always trying to plan and schedule things here on the farm or in life. From starting seeds inside to transplant out on a certain date, to planning how much of each crop to plant, trying to breed the cows and goats during a certain month so the following spring we will have babies when the grass is green, or deciding how many chicks to get this year so we will have enough eggs to sell for next year.  It seems the planning and scheduling is never ending.  Then I have a week that reminds me I’m not in charge and it is a good thing.  Things will happen when they are ready whether it is on my calender or not. This weeks surprise was Lily’s bull calf. Scheduled to arrive mid-June he made his grand entrance on May 21st.
