I had to run off some open range cows this evening as they edged ever closer to the blueberry area. Don't get me started about "range rights". It seems a bit archaic. Anyway, the fence I put up, the non-electrified one, seems to be working. PLEASE don't tell the cows. It is the calves that are the trouble makers. They will get through a fence and then the mother's cow's instincts take over. There isn't a fence that will keep her from her bawling baby. I just want a little more time to get the corn and winter squash in. Had a few ears of corn over the weekend, and now quite a bit is finishing up. The winter squash is not in a fenced area. So far, they have been left alone, but I hate to press my luck. New help coming on Friday, so maybe Saturday we will have a squash harvest session.
