We are anxiously waiting for our cotton bolls to burst open!
Today, we removed the temporary fencing and gave the sheep full access to pasture. Previously, the sheep had limited access to pasture until we were sure everyone would adjust without issue to their new home and pasture.
Abner, Winnie, Nettle, Sam, Olympic, Oregano and Parsley are very happy!
It’s hard to believe …..our Lil Abner is all grown up now. He’s not Lil anymore.
Welcome to our farm and our little flock of seven! More details to come…..
We are busy cleaning hay feeders, grain feeders and generally tidying up the barn. We are expecting six sheep including Abner this weekend.
More details to come….including photos.
Wish us luck with our next farming adventure!
I finally caught a glimpse of the elusive blooming cotton including the candle stage.
Last night as I watering the cotton plants, I noticed the Nankeen cotton had a bloom. It very quietly bloomed during the day. I was a sad to have missed it but happy to see progress. Hopefully, I will catch the next bloom in its full glory!
