In the meantime, here's some of what has been going on at our little micro farm:
I found this while raking up near the front stone wall. If I am correct, this is mullein. I found another by the side of the house, too. I am moving them into the garden since mullein is a valuable herb in my book.
Hubby started tilling the garden, but we could really use a bigger tiller than my little Mantis. The ground only just thawed, so it is pretty heavy and wet still.
I started cleaning out the old garbage heap down in the back of our property to make room for the animal pens. I found some old saw blades and that neat old lock.
I, yes, I built this raised bed for FREE using the waste from the saw mill and some scrap 2x4's laying around. I reused old screws, too.
I started work on daughter's Easter dress. She picked out this pink bunny fabric at JoAnn Fabrics when it was 40% off. I drafted the pattern myself. I'll be posting the finished dress, soon.
Our neighbor generously stopped over with a box of beef from his beef herd! What a blessing!
