Let hope it stops raining just for a minute

Of course life has been busy- it is spring, well now officially summer I guess. We have had to much rain to even keep track of, we had hay down that never got bailed so that will be bailed for bedding. It is suck a hard thing to see go to bedding. My garden is being taken over by weeds! So a little dry weather would be much appreciated. I think we are done with baby's for a while. Our last lamb had to be pulled and did not make, so 13 lambs total this year, up from 11 last year. The cows are done calving until fall and Chuck is training in our newest milk cow, and it has been an adventure to say the least.

This is blueberry rhubarb pie that I made for the freezer. I used fresh rhubarb and blueberries I had in the freezer from last year. I still want to make more- it is so nice to have pie ready to bake, just in case we have visitor or I am lazy and want something sweet.

This is the barn Chuck took down, he has started putting that front entrance part, that you can see in the bottom photo, together as a separate shed for garden tools.


The egg layer are loving being outside, fresh grass and bugs- yum, yum!

Last year we bottle fed a couple of orphaned rams, one we had to cull early this spring and the other has been getting out of fencing and just being a pain. Well finally he is in the pasture with our other ram- away from the ladies. Our main ram was not to happy as you can see he broke off part of his horn, now they are friends. Ahhh everything is right in the ram world.

The newest additions, born May 27th she is a cutie! Still no name for her, Chuck's working on it:)
