Waiting At The Gate

31Lizzie is happy to see me when I show up to feed or visit her.  Mama sheep is just wondering if I have any grain for her.

Garlic

22We’re just a few weeks from having garlic scapes, then a few more from harvesting heads.  We changed our starter garlic supplier for this season and have much healthier, happier plants than last year.   Two full raised beds full.  Yeah… we love garlic!

Guarding

26Lizzie is learning to watch over both sheep and chickens.  She’ll be a multi-species guardian.  🙂

Something New

27We had a lamb born this year that’s developing horns.  That’s a first for us, it must be a recessive gene.   It’s too late to disbud/remove them.  We’ll have to keep an eye on him to make sure he doesn’t grow into a bully.

Future Watermelons

20We’re trying something new in one of our raised beds this year, watermelon from seed.  It should be a fun experiment!

Teething

24Lizzie loves to bite everything.  We got her a few chew toys and are working to break her of this habbit.  Also working on ‘sit’, ‘lie down’, ‘come’ and walking on a lead.

Unsure

14This mom and her lamb are keeping our new guardian puppy Lizzie company in our small pasture.  They are not quite sure about the tiny fuzzy creature who wants to play with them.
