Please Meet Ava



Ava came to us this morning from a Cormo breeder across the mountains.   Isn’t she beautiful?   She was a bottle baby and hasn’t had time to get all muddy yet.   Here she is penned where the sheep can get acquainted.   Her bottle mama has just driven off and she’s a bit uncertain what has happened.


It didn’t take her long to fit right in.


It was a beautiful day and so fun to watch the sheep enjoy the grasses.   So today I spent much of the day being a proper shepherdess.


Later in the day, I did have to get serious about plants.   These 343  2″ pots are set up and watered


so we can put these started seedlings in them tomorrow.   We have beets, Cabbage, endive, cukes, broccoli, and bok choy, started.     As soon as they are strong enough, they will then go into the garden.   We have peppers and tomatoes going in the hoop house with more we want to plant.   Oh, and I found the elephant garlic that didn’t get planted.   I will get it in the ground tomorrow.    The weather forecast is 7 days of sun.

      Very soon would be a good time, before your energy levels go down. I wish we had moved farther out.
      Hint: Before you move, be sure to check out all zoning laws and as many neighbors as you can. The city
      is encroaching on us a lot.
