5th Annual Green Mountain Fiber Fesival    She has a very nice picture of Christopher as a 6 month old for our vendor info.

I need to go load the car for the festival, and get a Shetland fleece washed, and pack & price some Icelandic fleeces. So, I am out of here!!

Have a wonderful Thursday all and hope to see you at the Festival!!!

Thinking of next year's garden

This blog has some wonderful ideas that I may incorporate in the my gardens!

I love her raised beds, but I don't want to waste what little space I have been given for gardens. The rest of the land is for the animals. So I get creative using every square inch I have with companion planting. My favorite book is Carrots Love Tomatoes. This is the one I have- .
But, Amazon has plenty of others like it.

And, if you don't want to buy a book, you can go to this web site for a list of companion plants.

Now, if I could get rid of the front lawn, it would look like this!

Another interesting site.

Trying Craigslist one more time.

I have had good success with buying, but not so much with selling. A scammer tried to part me with my money, never mind the sheep, twice. I am willing to try one last time.

We are trying to sell Monster, a 90% Dorset X 10% Border Leicester/Jacob ram lamb for sale. His mother is the cross and his father is 100% Horned Dorset. He was born in February and has been handled enough to keep him friendly, but not aggressively friendly.

I'd like to keep him, but when it comes to breeding time, I don't have space to have 3 rams at once breeding. Not with all of the lambs we kept and the old ladies that are in with the lambs.

Random farm pictures

 The 3 old girls and 11 lambs out on 'new pasture'.

 Foraging in the brush

 The pigs are getting big.
Even Valery's runt caught up with the 2 big boys!

 Jack Black is not so sure about snow on his back...

 Jack says, 'Hurry up and let me in!'
Psycho says, 'No!'
A large number of the girls waiting at the gate for their treat of bread.


Born February 2013.
90% Dorset, 10% Border Leicester/Jacol
Full ram. Friendly, but not overly friendly!

A HUGE thank you to all who came out this weekend and purchased from us. We will continue to have $10 adult fleeces and $15 lamb fleeces on sale until they are all gone. All of our fleeces will continue to be 20% off until they are gone. I will work this week getting them up on the fleece blog.

VT Sheep and Wool festival


 Behind the seat of the truck was full, as was the back!

 Before we setup!
 The horse trailer was 1/2 full!

 Still setting up and working out some 'bugs'
 We were 'good to go' by 10 am opening!

 I like our setup under the overhang!


 This was the 2nd time this weekend that we saw the goats
pulling the cart through the festival. I believe they were Cashmere.

 Jerry waiting for customers. Or closing time?
 Myself and Kathie Bryant at our booth.

 This was our backdrop this year.
 On the way home Sunday afternoon-

We had a wonderful weekend in Tunbridge, VT this year. The sun was out in all its glory and the temperature hovered around 70-75. Despite the nice weather people came out and shopped. The yard work will be there next weekend!!

Next up is the Wool Arts Tour Columbus Day weekend. Hope to see you there!
