I'm really pleased with how well my lambs are walking on their leads. This morning for the first time I took them out separately, and they STILL did well -- GOOD lambies! Of course, I was busy taking care of them and other morning chores so I didn't have my camera; you'll have to take my word for it. :-)
I just got off the phone with someone at the county Extension office regarding the noxious weeds in our area. As I suspected, not much can be done, especially at this point when the tansy can still go to seed even if it's sprayed, mowed, or pulled. About the only positive thing that came out of the conversation was mutual appreciation (me for the extension office, the agent for my efforts on our own property), and confirmation that I had labeled the thistles correctly as bull thistle and Canadian thistle. I have just a few more of the latter to dig in the upper pasture and that job will be done for the year.
Yesterday I picked the first two bell peppers from our garden. I think Brian and I will have them for lunch. There are little yellow crooknecks, zucchini, cucumbers and melons visible among the vines and bushes, and a literal tomato jungle, all promising good things to eat in the near future. Bon appetit!
That's it for now at . . .
