The Barn Report
We ended up with a lovely crop of lambs this year and only the last two were on the bottle. We’ve been raising Sherman and Mr. Peabody for the last six weeks because their mama only has half an udder and two children. Mr. Peabody has gone to Pittsburgh for a talk on Rare Breeds and sits on my lap while I spin. We’re almost sad to see them get weaned in the next few weeks.
Putting up hay and planting crops is taking up most of our June. The kid has planted sweet corn, several types of pumpkins, sunflowers, squash and melons. Did you know that white vinegar is an organic weed killer???
Today we added the first of the CVM/Romeldales to the flock. We won’t be breeding, just keeping wethers for their fleeces. Welcome Arne & Carlos!
