Cooler Weather

Cooler weather has arrived along with soaking rain! The ewes are thankful. It was unseasonably warm last week, 40 degrees above normal. Too warm too fast. All the animals were stressed. The free choice mineral bin was a popular hang out and the water tanks were never full enough. I cleaned, weeded, and rototilled the herb garden. It always is a huge project. I think about spring cleaning when placing the mulch on the garden in the fall, trying to place enough on, but not too much. The thought being if I clean and organize well in the fall the spring cleaning will be minimized. A good thought. It never happens. Oh well, the herb garden is ready for spinach and lettuce. Hopefully, that will happen today. Live well, Carmen
