a good weekend

i had a good weekend.

fox came home from europe with lots of belated valentine's chocolate for me.

i wasn't sweating it b/c i had already gotten him a really cute bonsai tree.

but, mostly i was happy thinking about spring and all the plans for three dog farm. i have noticed recently that when i go up to feed the sheep at 5:30pm, there is still some daylight left.

so we are over the hump and spring is around the corner. time to start planning: build cold frames, order fruit trees, order seeds, and keep tabs on freyja who should be giving us an april lamb. i have also been thinking a lot about goat dairying which i will do a separate blog about later...

do you milk your sheep? I have heard of people milking sheep and making cheese and soap from it.Never knew anyone that did.

no i don't milk my sheep. BUT, icelandics are the dual purpose breed--milk, meat, and wool. my ewe is really skittish. i think if she has a ewe lamb i will handle her a lot so milking could be an option in the future.

i guess i meant tri-purpose breed.
