Just a short update....we have had an unforeseen delay on the arrival of the sheep. The grass is high and lush. The sheep paddock area is too steep to cut for hay so what to do with it.
Trade for Strawberries and real, warm out of the cow MILK!
Our neighbor has a Jersey Cow and two Dutch Belted cows and a Jersey steer, his grass is short and so it was a match.
We get to have really wonderful milk and I have been processing strawberries. Sun ripened strawberries for snacks and jam. The grass trade is good for both outfits. How lucky we are to have something we can trade for something we are excited to have.
This is what I saw out the back door this morning. Bucolic!
I have to admit it is nice to see stock using up that grass. They have been rambling around the new field all day and as cows do, taking a comfortable afternoon ruminate.
We had strawberries!
And the one chick...well he is fun!
God Bless you all....
