OLD SPINNING NEW MITTENS-EGGS AGAIN-SHEARING DAY COMING UP-NEW PLANS FOR THE GARDEN

GREETINGS

The winds are howling today, the sheep will be staying in until this afternoon when its suppose to be less windy.  We have had a wild winter so far.                            

 My health is slowly improving, I have been on the meds for more than a week and am coughing less and breathing better.  Yea.  Thank you Michelle at Northampton integrated Medicine.     The new  (to me) pellet stove is working great, keeping the house cozy.

OLD SPINNING NEW MITTENS

I spun this wool in the late 80’s  with the intent of making a Scandinavian reindeer sweater.  I still want to make one.  I loved the colors and decided to make something with the yarn.  One can never have enough mittens.

PLANS FOR THE GARDEN

I have gotten some seed catalogs and picked out trees and seeds to order.  I do want to get more cover trees for the birds.  We seem to have so many cats now in the neighborhood..   Some hemlocks and spruce and The Greenfield Farmers Cooperative had some miniature pines that would work for the front yard.

For years I have wanted a hoop house and online I saw the perfect one.   Ricky said he would help me install one or two on the back hill.  Perfect solution for a hill which is hard to walk on. I may incorporate the area for the chickens. The quality of the picture isn’t that great  but you can see how they are built into the hill and easily made out of cattle paneling and plastic.

Many thanks for reading my blog on this windy day.  Carole
