Wow! What a start to March we have had. It is certainly nice to start seeing all this snow melt, and go outside without a jacket and hat today. You can feel the maple sap coursing through the trees, and the sun on my face is doing wonders to shed off some mid-winter stress.The 2015 season has started with 24 lambs being born in the past couple of weeks (and more to come). They have been an healthy and vigorous bunch despite the sub-zero weather some of them were born in a few weeks ago. Lots of female (ewe) lambs who are going to help our flock grow in number over the course of the coming years. Along with these new arrivals our onions and early flower seeds are germinating and the of the potential of the season is growing within us.
