HELLO

Planting

My friend Susan brought me a boat load of plants the other day  I put 1/3 of them in and have the rest to do.  Just don’t know when it will get done.

 Hundreds of Morning Glories from last year have come up in the Herb Bed.  I will dig some up for the Farmers Market.

We had very heavy rains for the past few days.  Everything is waterlogged.

ENCOURAGING CROWS TO LIVE ON THE FARM

I visited a friend of mine the day before yesterday and she was telling me that she has some crows on her farm.  There are hawks around but  they are chased  away by the crows.  I know they can be a menace but they do play an important role in protecting chickens from hawks and eagles.  I have thought it out and I will not encourage them here.  I have lots of birds here on the farm and they have been here for generations.  The crows would plan havoc with them and there are nests everywhere in the yard.  

SAM

 Many thanks for all your kind words and thoughts about Sammy.  He is missed and wonderful memories of him will be with me forever.  He had a wonderful life and was King of the household.

I have been going through a little rough patch and in the mail comes this box of goodies from Ireland.  What a way to brighten a day.  Thanks Cindy.

SHETLAND FLEECES

 A while ago I got some Shetland fleeces for a bargain price, I am going to bag the three different colors up for people to purchase and spin and with part of this fleece I want to make some wool shoes out of it.  I think  slipper socks will work for the bottoms and I can always replace them,  The spinners group may do this as a project over the summer.
