Taken 8/21/13. Shows how warm it was going to get today....I don't know how true it is, but the thermometer on the front covered porch reads 98 degrees at 11 am. I need to take more fleece pictures and get them on the blog. It is supposed to rain this afternoon and I will take advantage of that to do all of the inside 'stuff'.


I need to find my tripod in order to get some better shots of the moon, and the varmints around the farm!! My hands are shaking too much these days...

 100 bales of 1st cut hay
 We are done with hay until the hay man gets the 2nd cut done.
With all the rain we had this summer everything is very delayed!
When I went to lock the pigs in for the night, I was treated
to the full moon just starting to come up over the tree line.

Around the farm

 Gizmo, the largest of the 3, feels he needs to lie in the feed bucket.

 Washed Romney to be blended with the washed Mohair below.

 Everyone needs a pet barn chicken. The rest were picking on her, and made
 her comb and top of her head bleed. She's been happy in the barn for 2 weeks.

 My neighbors honeybees love the ragweed.

 I love the garden spider!

 Can you see the honeybees?

Only 46 days until VT Sheep and Wool Festival!

And, I apologize that I am not real good about keeping this up-to-date! It seems it is quicker to get onto Face Book and post a line or two there. If you are not already following us, then click on this link and 'friend' the farm.

I emptied the basement, and what was left in the horse trailer, and set them out on a large tarp. I need to go pull off the top tarp and set it on the ground under the skirting table. It will make clean up a lot quicker!! I will be taking pictures of various fleeces and FINALLY get them posted.

We have a double space this year at the VT Sheep & Wool Festival and one tent may end up being all sale fleeces! $5/bag for small and $10/bag for large. Same price on the fleece blog. The only fleeces not selling at that price will be the ones grown here. But, they will be 20% off the regular price for our 20th year as Ewe & I Farm. Hope to see you at the festival!!

My friend Pam told me this morning what this plant was. It is mixed in with my raspberry plants and my neighbor's honey bees go NUTS for it. I've never seen them have what I would know as a flower on them, but the bees legs were full of pollen. If it stops raining again, I will take pictures of the bees and the ragweed.
In the meantime, this is what Wikipedia has on it. I did not realize there were so many different kinds!
