Three plus raised beds of garlic is what we planted last October. The bunnies thankfully leave it alone, even though there’s not much else around to eat in the Winter. The individual cloves sprout greens then it kind of goes dormant during the cold weather. In May we’ll be harvesting scapes then digging up the heads in June/July. We’re still using garlic from last Summer’s harvest. I sliced some really thin then put it in the dehydrator. After a quick whirl in a food processor, homemade garlic powder. Tasty!

Beatrice comes in for a close-up. If she’s nearby when I come into the pasture, she always stops by to say hello. She’s my favorite. She’s friendly and cute and likes to smell my face. I like to smell hers, too.

Feeding time for the sheep is in the morning. We’ve got them trained to come to a small fenced in enclosure for their daily grain ration. They’ve got two feeding troughs so there’s enough room for everyone to get in there and get their share. Sheep aren’t as friendly (or annoying) as goats so having them all in one place gives us a chance to handle them when needed. It looks like someone’s carrying twins!
