Micro-farming is a lot of work...
Hence, the not as many posts as of late!
First, thank-you for the comments on the silk. I'm really enjoying spinning it, and tonight or tomorrow night I'll have enough to ply the first full skein! So, stay tuned for the finished silk post early next week.
Llama llama drama llama is doing well. He has bonded with the tiny baby goats now, and they're enjoying hanging out together, eating weeds, hay and clover.
He's also gotten to know us pretty well, and is pretty good about being handled.
Planting and growing seems to be a major activity around the place right now. Baby squash plants look good...
Building the Chicken Palace is also one of the main activities going on, here it is after a few days work from Nate and his Dad who was visiting last week. We're going to finish it up Sunday I hope.
Tiny baby goats are growing, and seem to be pretty happy in their new digs. I can't wait to let them out into the pasture soon! (But it has to be hayed first...if we let them out now, they'd disappear the grass is so tall).
The garden grows. Peppers, chiles, eggplants, tomatoes, tomatillos, onions, corn, potatoes, beans, peas, and all manner of good things to eat.
Cats at work too, guarding the wood piles, scouting out snakes, crickets, moths, and mice.
Running through the grass, tip of a tail all you can see. If....you watch closely.
