Yesterday we were able to get our special goat mix into the 5 acre lower pasture just in time for today's rain. #homesteading #growyourown

A boy

A new little lamb just joined the family. It's a boy. #stcroixsheep #lambingseason

Makin hay

Ok, we tilled over the weeds and got our special goat mixed consisting of oat, wheat, barley, peas, beans, and vetch. It's supposed to rain again Wednesday so Monday we plan to get our seeds in the ground and covered. #nowweremakinhay

Just when we thought it was going to be a slow news day. Nurse Nella helps out with the new lambs. It's a girl! #stcroixsheep #Anatolianshepherds #lambingseason

After moving the girls to their new pen, we were able to pull down the old fence where they used to be and scrape about 2 years worth of old alfalfa and hay stems out for the compost pile. This isn't even all of it! We layered a little pig manure in and it is already getting hot. Now if we could just harness thus heat into a winter greenhouse we could start growing citrus around here. #compost #ruckussleepshere #oneprojectalwaysleadstoanother
