Spring is really here!

Nearly all the trees are in leaf or in bloom, or both!
The downside is the covering of yellow pollen on everything, but I will take it!
No calf yet, I am driving myself and probably Dave a little crazy with checking her and pondering, inspecting, ruminating about it all the time! We are really really ready to get the milking part again!

 Bumble bee on Wisteria (1 of 30 or so!)

I love their smiles!

The dogwood blooms for a week or so only, shame.

The girls nap and chew cud.

The hens love when we weed and clean the yard!

Pig size comparison, he should be tall enough very soon!

a sunset, naturally

Max and the wisteria fence line, the bumble bees drive him bonkers.

Wisteria blooms up close, I wish I could share their heady fragrance.

Wishing you a wonderful week and a beautiful Spring!
(I will update as soon as we have a calf! Promise!)

LLR Weekly update!

It has been a great week, and we look forward to the next. We may even finally have a calf! ;-)
Garden pics:



Cooking: Made several loaves of sourdough and one loaf of whole wheat/oats/flax bread, also we were gifted a gallon of cream so several pounds of butter were churned! I ordered a kombucha mother culture, greek yogurt culture and will be doing inventory of the cheese cultures so I can get those ordered too. (In preparation of having milk soon, very soon!) 

Dave and I, for the first time in history I think will have the exact same work schedule (both work 3 days and both off 4 days--together!), I am really excited about having more time together!

Wishing you all a healthy and wonderful week!
