Long Days

February 21, 2012

Well we’ve had a couple litters of babies, lost one of them for unknown reasons. It’s been some spring preparations of a different kind, preparing raised beds, tilling soil, hauling manure, planting cooler weather things like lettuce.

Above photo is dug up framed in bed. Below is after manure, compost and soil are added.

Above – working the garden the ‘old fashioned’ way by hand.

Raised beds without borders, ‘hilled’ with walkway between.

Four by eight food raised bed by hoop house.

End of a busy day – priceless.

Above – Connor’s litter of Champagne D’Argents – this is a breed that is born black and get lighter. The roan on this baby is coming in well.

All work together! Another raised bed area.

Planting soon!
