WOOLY BEAR CATERPILLARS

Yesterday I found one of these little guys on the porch.  He must have thought Spring had arrived.  I scooped him up before a Blue Jay had him for lunch and brought him inside.  Gave him some lettuce to chew on while I went online to see how I could help him.  While I was doing that he was busy moving the lettuce leaves to cover himself!  They spend the winters under stones or wood, leaves and a variety of things.   I went to the farthest part of my wood pile and took off the first couple of pieces.  I found a comfy looking space between two logs, gathered up some leaves and put him and the lettuce deep inside.    I think he will be safe there for the rest of the winter.

RAINING INSIDE THE BARN AGAIN

We were suppose to get sleet and snow instead it is raining like crazy.  When I fed the sheep and checked thechickens I could see and hear it.  I made some trenches this morning hoping that will keep some of the water  away from the barn.  I will be glad when that is fixed and we are back to bare ground again.

MARY JANE’S FARM MAGAZINE

I received my magazine a couple of weeks ago and have been slowly going through it.  So many interesting articles in it. Which foods have GMO’s in them, the history of clothes pins, recipe’s,  and so much more.  It is interesting how many people are making their own clothes these days, my friend Deb has been making her clothes for years, Louise is making her own clothes this year and I have gotten out some patterns and think I will make a few summer things.  

I leave you tonight with a favorite view from my street, the little Church by the canal on a warm winters day.  Hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.
