Kids, lambs and strawberries. By Sophie

One of our dorset sheep Maud, delivered twins the other day! I went looking for her and found her in the woods with a ram lamb and a ewe lamb dry and nursing. Yeah Maud!

Nellie, the queen of the goat herd, also had twins this week! Two beautiful brown doelings! She’s had 13 kids here now.

Ola and William enjoyed watching them be born; both at the same time!

I went strawberry picking with a friend at Scotts in Moneta. We each picked 7 gallons. Then we had lunch in one of the many strawberry fields. We finished off with homemade ice cream. Guess what flavor?!
We froze some, dried some, made strawberry syrup, strawberry rhubarb pie, strawberry rhubarb parfait, and soon we will make jam.

Strawberries everywhere!

  1. I love that picture of you in the strawberry field. We’re getting lots of strawberries here too. James can hardly keep up with them. I’ll be over to see Nellie’s babies soon. I can’t believe she’s delivered 13 kids.
