Early crops…planted!

Had another successful day today, once again starting out with some socializing and this time meeting new farmers!

 

We discovered a lovely young family a couple of miles away who are working very diligently at getting their farm business off the ground.  The Sawyer Family Farm is growing by leaps and bounds with goats, rabbits, hens, meat chickens and horses.  The owners are full of great ideas and enthusiasm and were gracious enough to have us for a visit this morning!  We were impressed!

 

Here’s our newest addition to the farm!  A couple of friends collaberated and constructed this awesome new sign for us as a gift!  It’s going to look GREAT out by the road!

After our visit and a trip to Tractor Supply for…well…supplies…we came home, grabbed a quick lunch, visited with some prospective customers who are now anxiously awaiting the arrival of our lambs, and then got to work.

 

We hooked up all of the sheep water troughs to float valves so that they will automatically keep full.  That will be a huge time saver!  We re-tilled the garden and started planting!

We’ve put in carrots, spinach, snow peas, shelling peas, lettuce and onions so far.

This photo gives you a perspective of where everything is in relation to the garden…house, barn, hen house.

Here’s some of the rhubarb coming back to life.

One of the boys got sidetracked and built this bunkbed for his sister’s doll house.  

Ain’t that sweet of him?

Roy’s finishing up the day right now getting limestone granules spread around the property to help pH balance the soil.  

 

 

And, as usual, Blue was less than helpful.

But he does make up for it in just being so darn cute!
