farm signThings have been busy on Old Home Farm. Two sets of twin lambs were born last week. Mothers and babies are doing fine. I learned my lesson from last fall, and gave the mothers plenty of time to bond with the new arrivals. So far I have one ewe and three rams. Evie has yet to lamb (she's always late at everything), so I'm hoping for a couple of more ewes from her.

We've also been working on the garden. I set out several plants I've been bringing along in the mini green house.

Greg is making me a rock "terrace" to set the herb pots on. Its not quite finished yet as we are still collecting rocks to fit together, but its far enough along to start using.
