We had a weekend full of small projects. That is one of the best things around here – we are never lacking in things to do! We dug our strawberry rows and put 75 plants in the ground. 50 of them are June-bearers and 25 are everbearers. Next year should be a great year for strawberries!
We turned Liesel and her lambs out of their jug. The lambs are all playing and Liesel is happy because she dislikes being contained. Marta, on the other hand, has moved into Liesel’s old jug because she is now convinced that she only had one baby and is rejecting one of her twins. We are currently trying to trick Marta into accepting her lamb. I am hoping that she will accept him by the end of the week so we can turn all the sheep back out to pasture. Hopefully we will not have another bottle baby this year.
We picked up 8 cornish-cross chicks. These are the start of our meat birds. We will probably get some more in a couple weeks or so. Of course, this means that there are chicks living in the laundry room once again, which does not hurt my feelings at all. 🙂
