It has been a beautiful spring on the farm so far. We started lambing in February and everyone is now born and enjoying the spring grasses.
We also had a wonderful Easter this year - delicious lamb roast for the feast after our late service! Something you especially look forwards to after a fast.
I have been going to the Roanoke and Beckley Farm Markets this spring. They have been going well but we're almost out of lamb for this season. A few roasts left and that is about it. (If you want to stock up - now's the time!) We should have a full selection of lamb again this fall.
My sister and niece were able to come down to the farm for a visit last week. It is always wonderful to have them visiting. We enjoyed spending time on the farm, a(another!) lamb roast, and some fun new movies.
We did have a bit of an adventure one night with Roy. Over the last month or so, Roy has successfully completed a transition to being a house-farm dog which he enjoys very much. He has his rug by the door and gets to hang out all day.
However, during the family visit, on a walk up the hill in the evening, it seems he found, and decided to play with, a skunky friend. Needless to say, Roy is spending some quality outside time for a few weeks even after many baths and anti-smell washes!
I hope everyone has a wonderful spring. Will try to update again this summer.
