Sheep Shearing Time

Yesterday, we sheared our sheep. Sheep shearing is an all-day affair involving all hands.

First, the sheep are sheared. Then, they have their hooves trimmed and treated for any foot ailments. Next, they receive any needed vaccinations. While the sheep are being pedicured, their fleeces are being skirted.

To skirt a fleece means to remove any matted or soiled wool. The skirted wool is then bagged and readied to send to a local processor to be made into yarn, roving, batting and felt.

At the end of the day, the sheep were freshly groomed, the wool bagged and ready for processing, and we were tired!

Planting the garden

Well, the farmers have finally begun to plant their garden! My personal philosophy about our garden is that we often have balmy falls! Yes, I have been known to still be picking tomatoes in November. :>

Thankfully, my older son has taken over the garden planning and planting.  As I write, he is barefoot in the garden planting broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.  What a delight to feel the warm earth between your toes!

Haying Season

Just received a call this morning that hay is ready for us to pick up in the field! Yikes! How did hay season sneak up on us?! The morning plans are changed from working in the garden to preparing trucks for hauling hay. The timeline is tighten by the threat of thunderstorms this afternoon. Despite the sense of urgency, we can only do our best to beat the possible rain and let God take care of the rest.

Piglets ready to sell

Four litters of piglets are ready to leave our farm. After eight weeks of nursing on their mothers, the piglets are ready to be weaned (thus the name “weaner pigs”). They have grown from about 2 lbs at birth to about 35 lbs. at eight weeks. In about 4 more months, they will weigh 230 lbs. Glad my kids don’t grow as fast!

Chicken Pickers

Yesterday, w took t ime off from farm work to play music at a local retirement center.  We play folk and gospel music and a few old hymns. We call ourselves the “Chicken Pickers” because we used to raise chickens and you pick chickens and fiddle and guitar strings. We have played together as a family for about 3 years. We enjoy playing music and the folks at the retirement center seem to enjoy listening.
