Miss Lamb your lady of the land & meadow meanderer farmer here,
So... the oh so important meeting concerning the Farm Bill was this past Wednesday :) At the lovely Oklahoma headquarters for Congressman Frank Lucas
It went really... really... well:) I brought them Eggs...
All of our issues were heard, talks of heritage cattle & pigs was laughed over...Wendell Berry was kindly spoke of.... I actually remembered over half of the abbreviations and full names for the different programs in the Farm Bill, and talk about them in detail!!
I just wanted to do my best to represent the Young Farmers of Oklahoma & beyond....
I appreciate every letter that was put into the pond of amazing words for Lucas:)
Your words were heard & well received... very poignant letters my love:)

In addition, read this lovely story written by Mountain View native & Hobart resident, James Vernard. All about the CSP program:)
Things are well on the farm.... just really busy with pen building, cottage garden creating, barn cleaning & future planning:)
We are all still waiting very patiently for Ohio to have her Calf... here udders began to swell about 5 days ago, so any day now!!:)
Do you folks have any suggestions for flowers for the new Cottage Garden?:) Oklahoma weather tolerant?:)
I promise to keep yall up to date:)
I send a kiss to each of your foreheads....
Eggs, lace dresses and skirts turning into baskets,
Miss Samantha Joelle Honey Lamb
