Topic: Harvest Hills Farm activity
Sometimes I wonder if it's possible to start a blog with something other than, "it's been so busy around here."
And then I remember we're on a Farm and it's still Harvest time. Yes, the grapes are in, most of this year's steer are sold. The Summer interns are long back to school and August's Vacation Bible School and the family reunion seem like a decade ago.
Thankfully the hay's all in (fourth cutting tucked up in the barn today) and lots of the garden has been blanched or cooked or eaten or given away. Winter squash will be dispersed to family and friends this week.
Today, we still managed to harvest a bunch of herbs and they're in the dehydrator for their overnight drying--to be made into some blends tomorrow, hopefully.
And , after Church tomorrow, maybe we'll get another batch of potatoes up--if not, then certainly this coming week! OK--we probably have another couple of weeks' worth of gardening to contend with.
But, the high point of this week for me was the arrival of the Ewe lambs.
Meet this amazing group of girls who will be the foundation of our Katahdin meat sheep. We'll raise them in strict accordance with the Animal Welfare Approved, American Grassfed Association rules so they can provide our customers with quality lamb in the future.
Definitely cute--go ahead and get attached--these girls are going to be around for years to come!
