I’ve been negligent in the extreme the last few weeks. Lots of things going on around the farm. We have had at least 6 lambs born – I’ve lost count. The greenhouse is filled with spring transplants, the chicken palace is within a few days of having residents, and Carnation is giving us enough milk so that we are able to sell a fair bit of it.
There have been several changes with our cadre of young men. After 3-1/2 years, we have said “Goodbye” to Dewey, who is striking out on his own. Christopher and Dillon have both found jobs, which hopefully will fund vehicles and eventually their own place. Or, at least that’s the plan. In the meantime, we are keeping them busy with work here on the farm.
I wanted to have more accomplished on the solar installation by this time, but it has been raining a lot, which highlighted the fact that the barn roof still leaks along the valleys and I’d like to get those attended to before mounting a lot of panels up there. But the project is moving along.

Chris and Erin have come up with some class schedules and a Gala date. 2011 is under way!
