It's been a beautiful morning. I sat down to write earlier and little man decided it was time to get up. So after a sentence I was interrupted. But at 6:20 it was already nearly 70 degrees. Unbelievable weather for this time of the year. The guy working on our bathroom said Mother Nature made a fibber of him. He said we don't usually get grass until June but we've got grass! Oh do we have grass. I will have to mow the lawn here shortly.
So there are all sorts of things to do today. I want to get out in the garden and get some more space hilled up to put things. I also have the goal (we shall see) of getting some trellising up for beans (or peas if this weather breaks). Nesting boxes have to go in with the rabbits today. Lock down on our Delaware eggs starts tomorrow. Freedom rangers should be in tomorrow.
Moved the sheep's pasture yesterday. They aren't too thrilled with me. They don't like the new area so much, it's smaller then the upper pasture by quite a bit and the fence is now electrified so they have to stay in the space. They are hanging out in their barn right now (probably cursing my name since they are out of Alfalfa pellets until this evening). They will figure it out! On another sheep note, aparently our sheep are triple purpose. Fiber, meat and milk. Pulled a pint off one of my females last night and likely could have pulled more. And that was just one side of her bag because her baby had just been nursing on one side so she was lopsided... poor thing! So we figured we'd help her out for the second time since she had her kid and both times we've got a pint from one side.
Well, suppose I should get to it. What's on your to-do list for the day?
Hi there, Wysteria here. I will be writing as regularly as possible on behalf of my family and regarding our adventures in farming, food, health and things of the like. My interest range widely and my brain wanders far. Namaste.
