     It's a cold, rainy October day and I'm sitting on the couch thinking about what's been going on at the farm and in our lives over the past few months.  I have lots of time to think as I had knee replacement surgery 5 weeks ago.  About all I can do is...

     With only a couple days remaining in spring I started recalling all we have been through over the last few months. To sum it up - "lots of lambs!"

Everyday around our little farm is busy. Daily chores, ongoing repairs, trips to the feed store all make up...

     More signs of spring are arriving everyday.  The sun is stronger.  The days are getting longer.  The goats are shedding.  The bees are heading out of the hive for an occasional flight. The trees are tapped and the sap is running.  The greenhouse is full of seedlin...

      Well, what a month!  Everyone was battling with record cold temperatures in January, us included.  Living in snow belt country definitely has its challenges at the best of times.  In addition to record lows feeling like -40 degrees, we also received lots of snow...

     Well, the snow squalls have subsided for now.  Winter has finally settled in.  After finishing the morning chores, we're sitting in the sunroom, watching the birds congregate at the feeder, and reflecting on the past year while looking forward to the year ahead....

     The temperatures have finally fallen.  The nights are better for sleeping, the animals are more relaxed, and canning season is drawing to an end.  We are busy now with fall jobs, preparing for winter.  The firewood has been moved in to the garage - all 14 cords....

     I'm sitting on our front porch looking over the pond, lambs grazing, and listening to the gentle bleating of lambs and goats as I blog about the summer adventures on our little farm.  Sounds idyllic.  Exactly how I thought I would spend my mornings in the country....

 Relaxing in the heat!

 Chilling in the shade.

 The pond is finally in.

A cooling nibble. 

Still waiting to try this out! 

 The flock is growing.

 Pretty cute!  Lily and Georgia.

 Cooling off in some mud.

 Always time for a cold home brew at the end of the day.

      Our second little lamb, Lily, arrived May 4.  If you remember, that was the day of the wild wind storm in southern Ontario.  Of course, Lily was born right in the midst of it.  We checked on Poppy earlier in the day and there were no signs that she was ready to d...
