Fall has been kind to the farm. We are still harvesting cool season crops, napa cabbage, tatsoi, pac choi, and turnips. Also, winter radishes and turnips have grown well and we feed their greens to the poultry and the veggies to the sheep.

It’s been a few years since we had fall lambs but the sheep have lambed generously this November. Consider that these ewes conceived in March and April, then carried the lambs through the drought and poor forage and still have lambed healthy babies. Amazing Katahdin sheep. Pasture grasses resurged and we’ve been able to graze there since mid-September. All the lambs have been born on pasture and are doing well. The grass is pretty well grazed down now, so this afternoon we will be moving all the sheep back to the barn pasture. There is a little grass there and we’ll start them on winter hay. It’s more enjoyable to have the sheep and lambs where I can see them several times throughout the day.
