Bringing Home a Part of the Farm

We were driving back to our apartment yesterday evening when we passed a parked horse trailer.   This sighting would not be unusual where we had come from in the Shenandoah Valley, but we had already crossed over the Key Bridge.  Horse trailers and the namesake they carry aren’t that common here, so we slowed down to get a better look.  In the front yard of a nearby home, we spotted a pony, a goat, and a llama – a complete petting zoo driven in for a birthday party!

At the time, we had our own garden in the back of our Fit – a full harvest from the garden at my grandparents.  After spending the day picking a bushel of beans and mowing their substantial yard, we came home with some squash, cucumbers, peppers, and a container of hand-picked blackberries.  (We managed to leave the beans behind, though after picking through three rows, I thought I would never escape.)  This morning I discovered that I also brought back several bug bites, a burned shoulder, and the possibility of poison on my right forearm.
