Spring-like day on the farm

There is a lot going on on the farm when the weather in February acts more like spring than winter. So much life is happening. Lambs are being born, honeybees are out searching for food and pollen, flowers are beginning to bloom, and green is showing itself all over. Spring on the farm is such a glorious time of year.  

 

A set of twin Corriedales arrived this morning.

The bees are busy today! 

This is where our garden will be. Planning and preparing the garden for planting.

Spring Planting Festival at Baker Creek Seed Co.

May second and third we headed down to Mansfield, MO to a fabulous little festival called the Spring Planting Festival. We have been there a couple times now and every year it seems to get bigger and bigger. There are many artisans and plant vendors and of course you cant miss the Baker Creed Seed Company Store, which is filled with thousands of non-gmo heirloom seeds. The selection is downright amazing, but also can be overwhelming. Another must stop while in the Bakersville is the bakery for their fantastic cinnamon rolls. There is truly tons to see as well of speaker presentations and live music. If you ever get a chance to go, I highly suggest it.

While there, I picked up some garden hand tools, three chickens,  some plants and of course I couldn't pass up some handspun yarn to add to my stash (if only I could figure out what to use it for). The best and worst part of going to events like this are all the ideas and wants that you start developing, so it makes that already long list of wants and to-do's even longer.

We were blessed with a beautiful weekend to visit and we look forward to more visits in the future.
