We rotated everyone earlier in the week to their new, fresh grazing ground. It takes time to move the fences and the grasses are lush, so putting up fence takes longer. Speaking of grasses...how wonderful to have the grass grow this year!!! I don't think I'll ever take grass growth for granted ever again! We've had a lot of rain and the grass is deep. The sheep are VERY happy, and the lambs are growing great!
It's looking like market weather next Saturday is going to be very nice, so mark your calendars to be there! The strawberries are ripe, the lettuces are very tasty, and early onions and carrots are ready for you. Grab your grocery list, your favorite market bag, and head on over Saturday morning. Don't forget to plan your next knitting project! We have lots of lovely yarns freshly spun and ready for just the right special project you might have in mind. Remember to come early as when a fleece sells out, it's gone until next year!
I'll leave you with a picture of some yarns that will be for sale Saturday morning. These three skeins sell as a package, with the blue making a beautiful complement to the black. If you'd like to buy them, but cannot make it to market, you can purchase them from our Etsy Shop (find the link to the right here on our farm blog). Etsy is so convenient! You can shop anytime, use your credit card, and the yarns will be shipped right to your doorstep!
