It's been a busy week. I'm behind on getting my seeds planted, the baby goats are doing good, and Frank is working on tearing down the old shed. This morning the temperature was 17 degrees, yuck. We would rather be finished with these kinds of temperatures. But it is still winter, after all.
We told you about the shed we are demolishing a few days ago. Frank has been working on that this week.
A few evenings ago, I carved out a little bit of time to finally get the carrots and beets seedlings started. I am about 10 days to 2 weeks behind my planned schedule for starting seedlings, but sometimes life has other things planned. Out of the list of things I had planned to start by February 15th, the carrots and beets are all that are in the pots so far. I finished off the last of the beets by the glow of the porch light, but they are in.
We let Velvet and her kids out of the birthing pen on Tuesday evening. The boys are doing great and jumping around like nuts. They are so fun to watch. Velvet is a very good mom this time around and appears to have calmed down. We are very pleased with her progress. I tried to take more pictures of the babies, but they are not very interested in standing still for very long.
Spring is a very busy time. Baby goats coming, by the way, Ivory is due this Sunday and Copper next Friday. Eggs in the incubator which will start hatching the same day Copper is due. Babies everywhere! Then the time is quickly coming when we will start planting the garden. Once Frank has the building down, we will have the new building brought out and set up. That will allow us to till the garden again and start setting up the trellises we will be using for some of the garden plants. There is much to do after our slower, winter lull.
Keep your ear to the ground and your senses keen. Hold your family close and thank God every day for your many blessings.
Until next time - Fern
