Farmers in the dell

Yesterday, the donkeys got pedicures! Wow, this isn't as glamorous as it sounds. Turns out the donkeys feet hurt from being overweight (I can relate) and the hoofs need attention as a result.

Paulette tests out the tractor. Hopped up like she had driven one before. Not sure where that might have been, but, if she drives that like she drives Minnie, look out!

 
This afternoon, we got a mini lesson on dyeing sock yarn. Might even give it a try when Bonnie visits in October.

This afternoon, I walked the four pastures and took the following farewell photos of JMF animals. We'll miss the clucks and barks, and mooing and baaaing and cockel doodle doing.


 
 
 


We head out tomorrow to meet dear friend, June, and tour Monticello before heading north to Frederick, Md, where we're staying before heading back to Ohio.

Earlier today, and I do mean earlier, we drove into Charlottesville to the farmer's market and then explored the campus of University of Virginia. What an awesome campus! Very, very interesting!
