Shorty cooling off on a hot morning

Another heat wave, temps soaring into the 90’s and humidity is at the oppressive level.  We have a had rain so the garden won’t dry out.

JEWEL WEED

I am still pulling up jewel weed  It’s over 10 feet tall in many place.  Thank goodness the sheep and chickens love it.  It attracts bumble bees and humming birds so I am enjoying that outside my computer window.

Jewel week through the barn window at least 12 feet high.

SPINNING AT NOFA

NOFA is the Northeast Organic Farmers Association and every summer it has a conference at UMass.

Under blazing sun and humidity I did a spinning demo  yesterday afternoon. I met a lot of wonderful people and was busy for the entire time, showing people how to spin and explaining  the process and sheep and wool types.
