You don't mess with Woodsy and her babes. #turbomom
One of our lovely ladies, Noon, hasn't been doing so well and is currently being nursed in Luke's goat ICU. There was room for hope this morning that progress might be possible, but after seeming to have lodged something in her esophagus over the weekend it is still unclear if she can get over the damage that was done. Fingers crossed.
It's hard to get a good morning nap around here.
Kidding season & the farm in full gear has posed the biggest reality check on how.to.get.everything.done and keep our child happy. While she is a trooper and gets strapped to me and off we go, there are limits to how productive one can be. So I do find myself staring outside trying to come to peace that this will not be The Year of The Garden, or much else for that matter. But it will be a lot of Maisie, which is a miraculous and precious thing indeed.
Monk & her babes.
little baby goat nibbles on a rainy morning is my kind of medicine.
Excited to announce that our chocolate covered caramels just won a SILVER SOFI from @specialtyfoodassociation in the chocolate category!
Good mama she is. Scout.
Kidding season is certainly testing the limits on how long will Maisie put up with hanging out in the barnyard. Kisses from Josie help. 😘
Another 15(!) kids born in the past 24 hours. Too many birth stories to share. A lot of super moms though, you can count on that.
Each fall, when goat chores slow down, our fall apprentice plants a few hundred bulbs around the farm. Tiny paintings emerge in the spring. Dan planted these. Beautiful work, Dan!
Elvis takes his job on the welcoming committee very seriously.
And so it begins. Scout, Luna & Meridien each introduce little doelings to the world.
Maisie meets Becky. Instant bff's.
We lost one of our hives this winter, maybe two, but this one is out and about and celebrating making it through another winter. #winteristoolong
After such a long winter the sunshine just feels so darn good.
