April 29, 2013

Wow, this month really flew by.  I think I may try to post something once a month right now.  There's so much going on and I never have time at the computer.  It just happens to be a rainy day and chores are done, so i have a little time to post.

The beginning of the month brought a great new shearer from NH down and our sheep and llamas were all shorn - all totally shorn at 8:00 p.m.  - yes, in the dark - with a spot light.  What an adventure.  The guys did an incredible job - were a ton cheaper than anyone around here - and did it in the dark!

Right after this we had a surprise snowstorm and the animals were absolutely miserable!  I've never seen llamas shake with cold like that!  I couldn't sleep all night being worried about them, but all survived.  The worse part is the garden.  Nothing hardly has grown since February because of the incredibly cold spring.  I don't know what is going on.  I was picking and selling a ton of greens last March. We finally have a some lettuce growing that I planted last fall.  I'm picking kale also, but now it's goin got seed.  The broccoli survived, but produced one little itty bitty piece of broccoli on each plant - no heads or broccoli at all!  It has been a horrible, horrible spring.
