Baby Crazy

What we are loving right now are the 4 new kittens who were born on 6/24/09. The story of our journey to having them is long and torrid. You wonder how that could be when cats get pregnant so easily. Well, it's not the conception that challenged us, but the worry that we had passively contributed to the overpopulation of cats in the world and our sheepish calls to our vet, Dr. Kate, who we admire greatly, to confess that Baby Kitten had been knocked-up. There were countless hours of heavy processing on my part. You may remember Baby Kitten (aka Sylvia Dragon) who joined our family back in

When we went to our favorite farmer getaway, the MOFGA Farmer to Farmer conference, a dairy farm family brought three kittens into the childcare room the last day. Like the baby crazy suckers we are, Flora, Emma and I scooped up a kitten and covertly tucked her into the car before John could say much. He was light on conversation on the drive home, wondering what happened to the "communication" in our relationship. But, we were baby crazy. The girls loved up on the new kitten all the way home and she slept the better part of the three hour drive on Flora's lap, in the car seat. John was quickly wooed by the newest addition and Flora dubbed her Baby Kitten, which has stuck as the most used name. It is presenting some confusion for us now that there are 4 more baby kittens in the mix. Needless to say, we are so proud of our new momma and her babies. She is a delight to watch.

We'll write again about the harvest for next week by Monday night, including recipes, but we are unable to resist sending a note to announce the newest addition.

The pick your own strawberries are plentiful, juicy and ready to go. Please feel free to come by 7 days a week between 7A and 7P. We look forward to seeing you all!

Blessings on the meal-
Stacy and John

  1. Every time I start to be concerned about something like passively contributing to _____, I remind myself that it could have been worse. And I stop right there rather than thing about just how worse it could be. Very cute kittens!
