Well the machinery is gone and it looks like the clean-up is left to me.  The barn is all cleaned and fresh with DE and shavings.  I don’t have the new hay feeder yet.  Pat is super busy so I may try to find someone else to make it.  The sheep and Elliott have found the new yard quite fun and interesting.  More to explore.

  I am planting clover seeds on top of the hay.  I may buy some seed to plant in the fall.  When digging the men uncovered many springs I hope that they don’t cause a problem.  That may be the reason I have had water issues and this diversion will solve the problem.  Next year the sheep may go to pasture.  If they do I will reseed it all when they leave and it will be good for when they come back.  The place is on flat land with a run in shelter and less that 10 minutes from here. I have not looked at the fencing which may be an issue. 

The whole thing looks a mess, that is what happens when you need machinery.  This would have been impossible to do by hand.



Aren’t these beautiful.  I will be getting them ready to box up for Camp Wool.  I have another box that Susan and I will dye for scarves.  Lisa is looking for some grey for me, that would make good beards too.









The Roses seem so fragrant this year.


I have spotted peaches on the tree.  This will be the first year that I have fruit.  When I was a child we had a regular size peach tree in our back yard.  We got bushels and bushels from it.  The whole neighborhood enjoyed peaches for many summers.  This is  a dwarf tree so I don’t expect bumper crops like that but next year I may get another tree.  I so love peaches.



Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a lovely day.          Carole

Your roses are way ahead of mine, in fact the Rosa Rugosa is quite late this year, even though the cultivated roses are in full bloom! The peaches are looking good. I have some nectarines in the tunnel this year.
