While the dogs were outside yesterday, I let Naomi have the run of my office while I attempted to work on book illustrations. I discovered she has NO RESPECT for my art! (And being me, I took pictures instead of shooing her off!) She gets away with this because she's adorable. And has clean paws.
On another note, the farmer who rents our land started harvesting his soybeans yesterday.
Here's the front field, with its lone tree. The former owners told me what kind of tree it is, and I wrote it down somewhere, and now I forget. I like that it has been preserved all these years, in the middle of the field:
And here you can see the swath Dave has cut around the field to start:
And there he is, with my little camera zoomed to the max!
Bye bye soybeans!
The beans are off to Japan to become tofu for human consumption. Eventually we hope to turn all of our land organic, one way or another, but for now, Dave does a good job of looking after the land while he rents it.
