Great news - just watched Worsie, Buttercups' orphan heifer calf, nurse from Pearl ! My friend Salle was here and we were watching them when we saw it. Pearl half-heartedly pushed her off once or twice, but she returned and nursed. I've taken her off Craigs' List where I'd listed her yesterday because we didn't have enough milk for her from Dolly. Had a bit of interest in her, which I sort of found surprising.
Salle and I went around the garden, and yep, there are cherries on 2 of the trees, saw flowers on the blueberries, flowers on the strawberries, so maybe, just maybe, we'll get a fruit crop this year.
