We took a little time off Sunday afternoon to enjoy good friends and an all-terrain bocce ball tournament. We had three games going on with two 2-person teams each. The object is to 'bowl' the ball as close to the little white 'jack' (ball) for points; however, unlike formal bocce ball with a pristine court--we use the terrain of the yard and farm. And, the rule is that partners cannot come from the same house. We even had an audience--the four steer were quite interested in what we were doing and hoping for some food. Fred (Colvin Ranch) says the cows need to leave next week--they have done their job and there is little grass left for them. The deer must have heard about the cows getting ready to leave--two showed up last night in the front yard--yikes! Guard the beans!
This blog reflects the journey of Kathleen and Mark who have left suburbia to steward this historical property and transform the land back into a working farm.
