Easter Saturday Farm Update

Spring is really in the air around here.  Lots of bird noise outside, and the noisiest of all are the Sandhill Cranes.  The does and their kids are doing well and Kevin is ready to go back to work on Monday.  While at home, he's been doing some projects, including building a small chicken coop to put in the garden.  I will post a picture of that when it's done and in place.  Other goings on are that I've got some seeds started and a flat of lettuce ready to transplant into the greenhouse.  Kurt and I also made our first batch of Ole Lake Soap a couple of weeks ago.  It's curing in the formerly room, safely out of reach of our soap-eating dog.

Our first goat milk soap, made with frozen milk from last summer.  Looks good so far!

The flat of lettuce last weekend was getting leggy.  I ate some of the bigger leaves in my salad today. The lighting makes it look yellowish, but it really isn't.

Little Bluebell hopping with the joy of being a kid.

Big sister Chicky having some outdoor time.  She's not as thrilled about the kids as we are!

It was a pretty big day for this little guy.  He has a name now, Forest, and he got disbudded.

Vinca's doelings moved back out to the shed this morning.
Vinca's doelings don't have for-sure names yet... remember I was thinking about Orchid and Lily?  Still on the fence about the Lily and which one will get what name.

So there you go folks.  I will get back to my baking (cheesecake for Kori's birthday) and wish you all a very happy and safe Easter.


  1. Happy Easter...loved seeing the new kids ......and think Forest is a much better name for your studly little buck!!!!!..........kc

  2. Awww! The baby goats look adorable! I honestly couldn't take my eyes off of them for quite some time. Anyway, it looks like spring in your farm will be nothing but wonderful. With how things are going, I can tell the farm's going to be bearing great news for the years to come. Thanks for the update, Debby. All the best! :)
