Five lambs and a frosty morning
We know have five wonderful little lambs wondering here at the farm. Three are new additions as of Saturday. Wendy who did not have a lamb last year had twins (Mutt and Jeff) and Rosie had little Gail. The twins are both small Mutt the female is the smallest of the two. They seem to be doing well now after a bit of a worry that they possibly were not getting any milk. Ryan and I actually missed all the excitement as we were away for the weekend! Thanks to our neighbour at Thiessen farm`s and Randi the sheep were left in good care throughout our absence.
Yesterday we received our second seed order in the mail which was tomatoes. It is very exciting to open all the parcels that come in the mail at this time of year and so far we have received everything that we ordered which is fantastic. We will likely start planting next week. Not tomatoes but leeks, onions, and anything that is a slow grower.
The chickens have also been gearing up their egg production with almost a dozen eggs a day. Yesterday I actually found an egg outside of the chicken enclosure. A chicken had laid an egg in the outdoor section and the egg had rolled under the fence (there is small gap after the snow melted last week).
