Sunday was a busy day. We awoke to the sounds of lambs in the pasture. Seth went out to move the animals and discovered that the mother ewe was rejecting one of her lambs. Both lambs are healthy and beautiful but it seems two were too many for her. Spot is now living in our entry way and playing in our yard with the kids. He follows them around and happily takes the bottle from anyone. He slept better than our children, no sounds from 9 pm to 5:30 am!
Sunday the farm was also full of people; signing up for the CSA, planting seeds, and relaxing in the sun. It was wonderful to see friends and to meet new members. We are looking forward to the beginning of the season and for the farm to be a buzz with activity again.
The fields are drying quickly. We hope to plant the grain this week and to get the first two acres of vegetables tilled. We will then let the field rest a few weeks and wait for the cover crop to break down before we plant. It certainly feels like an early spring but hopefully there is a little more rain on the way!
