The first hard frost is expected tonight. What is left of my sad blighted tomatoes has already been turned over to the realms of the chickens. Have at them dear birds.

Milking this time of year starts in total darkness. This morning it was clear the air was filled with a heavy fog, as if the ground was letting out a big sigh of relief. Fern & Fiddle must have gotten lost from the rest of the herd, because I found them alone, panicking. We walked together until they were within goat call distance of their buddies.

It has been nice to soak up the heat this week, especially with fall nipping at our heals.

This week four years ago we arrived at Peaked Mountain Farm to help care for a herd of sheep and make cheese. To celebrate the beginning of our fifth year on this mountain we picked up a pair of kittens from the humane society. #thunder&hail

Meet Wesley. He is our next door neighbor, and along with his father Jason, he makes his way to the farm almost every evening to sit on the gator, ‘the loader’ or the steer. I think he might be the most concerned when any of our equipment is broken or, even worse, runs out of gas in the middle of the field where he can’t find it.

I often get asked if I miss art. Or when I will start ‘making art’ again.  And while I would love more time for reflection (dont we all?) I actually find myself completely art.satisfied without a formal practice. I say it as a joke, but I mean it with complete sincerity, that the entire farm is an ongoing, longterm art project in collaboration with a hillside and a herd of goats (and I think most farmers I know feel that way about their farms). The goats are eating their way through our brushy mountain pastures, transforming them. Along the way they make scribbles on the trees (which always makes our Cy Twombly seem very appropriately named). That we also get fresh, raw, creamy white milk out of the deal continues to amaze. Milk is a beautiful medium.

Last month our two trackers generated over 2000 kilowatt hours of power, which is over 80% of our energy use. Cool.
