Summer has arrived according to the calendar but the weather continues to feel a lot like Spring.
The growing continues...
|Ripe strawberry, there are a lot of them|
|Curly garlic scapes|
|Romaine lettuce, or as I call it, tonight's dinner.|
|Carrots are coming along...|
|...so are the beets.|
|A little succession planting|

Last Thursday morning, our second lamb was born. A ram lamb named Yorick, weighing in at 7 lbs.

Last Friday, another ram lamb, Yarrow, weighing in at 8.25 lbs, arrived.

Ylfa is 3 weeks old today! She's quick on her feet and very head strong.

I think we'll have a little break before more lambs arrive, so we trimmed hooves and de-wormed on Sunday then moved the girls and their lambs to a new pasture area yesterday in order to mow and give the other pasture a rest.

It's time to start thinking about how to manage the pastures through the upcoming Winter and who will go into what breeding group once November rolls around.
|Butterscotch, will she be our next mom?|

One of our young flocks of chickens has been relocated to the sheep pasture to become a part of our multi-species grazing plan.
Meanwhile the rams continue to live the bachelor life in John's pasture...

Here's to a wonderful Summer!
