It seems like this is a good time to update you on how things are going on the farm. We’ve had a good lambing season, finishing before this recent storm. Some lambs were born during previous bad weather but all are fine. Katahdins ae amazing in their ability to handle the weather. The lambs are bounding about in the snow.

Even though it’s very cold and certainly still winter, the chickens are beginning to lay more eggs. It’s the increasing day length that influences egg production more than the actual weather. I expect the ducks to start laying pretty soon, also.

It’s time to start some of the earlier seeds for the garden, particularly onions, leeks, celery, and eggplant. They all take a long time to get ready to set out. I was able to save some seeds for this year’s garden from last year’s harvest, but I still need to order seeds. It’s not practical in the small area that I have to save all my seeds.
