Mom and I are now in sunny Israel.  This is the view of the Mediterranean Sea from our hotel room in Haifa.  We've been here for 2 days now and I think I've recovered from jet lag.  The last two days have been very tiring, but today we are venturing out on our own so I should have lots of pictures for the next post.

I've been working many hours and now, finally, have the garden seeded.  Lyle will put the potatoes in this week while I'm gone.  All that will be left are the transplants, and I'll do them in June when I get home. 

Last year I had Reggie out helping me in the garden.  He was a real nuisance but he was fun to have around.

This year I have these squealing little porkers.  They sure make a mess when they get in the greenhouse.

Our first calf of the season was born this morning.  We had the cows bred to a Galloway bull last year.  This calf is a little different looking then we are used to.  He's only an hour old in this picture so he's still a little wet.

Why is it, when there are hundreds of puddles after all the rain, that you must swim in the goat water troughs?
