Did some major damage at the Rutgers Gardens pre-sale last night. It was our first time and it is amazing, the variety and quality are through the roof! The sale is open to the public today through Sunday, and the proceeds fund over twelve internships....win-win! Link to the event page in the previous post, and the list of plants is downloadable at the very bottom of the event page. Happy planting!

Carolina is all about Avea, the ewe lamb she is going to show at the county fair this summer. We picked her up a cute halter at Maryland sheep and Wool this weekend, but it will be quite a while before she fits into it. Sending out an e-mail with week assignments for bi-weekly shares and start of the season info tomorrow, check your e-mail members!

These little ones are the newest addition to the duck flock and are growing like weeds! In the barn for now, but soon enough they'll join the others on the daily walk out to the new duck pasture. The ducks aren't nearly as destructive to the gardens as the hens or sheep, but as our flock grows they definitely were getting into more trouble. Those puffs won't go away, it's a selected for trait that stays on in the crested adults, although not nearly as cute as it is when they are this tiny.

Rain rain go away! This newly constructed raised bed is destined to be the new home for our asparagus patch - as soon as the plants send up their first spears in their current overgrown location we'll dig them up and transplant. In the meantime, I relocated some struggling rhubarb into the corners and set up rows of shelling peas around the borders. Waste not want not!

Early birthday present arrived today - our Purple Martin house was at capacity last year so hopefully we can get this one up in time for last year's babies to move right in. Although first I need to evict the current tenants...

Bianca, in yarn form....isn't she lovely? Can't wait to see the yarn from the rest of the flock. Yay Spring!

Today was all about the sheep on the farm today, repairing and replacing pasture fencing before lambing next month. On the way inside, found this beauty - an egg from our Cayugas that's a solid steel grey. They only lay these dark grey/black eggs in the very beginning of the year, just in time for Easter :)

Snow on the first day of Spring? The ducks and hens still know what time of year it is!
