Plumbing the Fields

When we first brought sheep to our farm we had fenced in a part of the hay field to create a safe and limited pasture for them. As our flock grew we fenced in more of the hay field so that we could move… Continue Reading “Plumbing the Fields”

The Pumpkin Patch

This year we did not plant pumpkins at all. We planted tomatoes, butternut and acorn squash, black eyed peas, brussel sprouts, kale, celery, jalapeno and bell peppers, basil and cucumbers (which the gophers really, really liked). We also enjoyed some wild plums and dewberries,… Continue Reading “The Pumpkin Patch”

The Unspoken Code

“Wherever you are at this time in your life, do your best, give it your all, do it with your whole heart, be brave, courageous, strong, and be at peace. And if you find yourself discontent ask yourself why. You may, like me, be… Continue Reading “The Unspoken Code”

About dying wool

My first exploration of dying wool was with RIT Dyes on Debouillet roving. While the temperature that I dyed at did not exceed 140 degrees because I was afraid of felting the wool, the results were still pretty nice. I had found that mixing… Continue Reading “About dying wool”

Sybil delivered her first lamb!

Thursday morning when we got to the barn to let the sheep out for the day, to our delight we found that Sybil was beginning to deliver her first lamb. *graphic alert*

2020 First lamb

We’ve been watching the ewes carefully for the past two weeks as it became apparent the ladies were getting close to having their babies. This morning we went to the barn to let them out to pasture. Hiding behind one of the ewes was… Continue Reading “2020 Lambing season is here”

Busted! I know what you were doing last night

Guardian Dogs

As we approached you two this morning we knew something was up. You both sat quietly at the gate with those “I’m sorry mommy” eyes. It didn’t take too much longer before we realized how you spent your evening. Aside from your super innocent… Continue Reading “Busted! I know what you were doing last night”
