Sometimes it just seems as though things were meant to be.
And the way things are going this week...
I feel that very strongly.
I received an email yesterday announcing that my baby lambs have been born.
ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!
Can you believe it?
How perfect is that!
Two little girl twins....
one black and one white...
I am currently awaiting photos of the little girls,
so I borrowed this one from Pinterest just to give you an idea of what they will look like
They are two Old English Babydoll Southdown lambs.
I should be able to bring them home to the farm in about 8 weeks if all goes well.
what I need from you, friends, are some name ideas.
These twin girls need good names...
and I need suggestions!
The second half of my birthday kismet is the surprise gift that Hubbs had for me....
a spinning wheel!
I assembled it and started to play around with it yesterday.
Oh what fiber fun I am going to dive into!!
I also wanted to show you what I just harvested from our greenhouse.
Our greenhouse is not heated.
I do use heat mats under seedlings, however, theses greens just grew without heat.
And it's been rather cold these past few weeks.
Greens grow well in chilly temperatures,
and the leaves can withstand cold nights indoors.
I have decided that next winter I will be planting large containers of greens
at intervals so as to keep fresh salads available most of the winter.
There is nothing healthier than fresh greens eaten within an hour of picking!
Today is going to be the best day of the week.
Temperatures in the 60's will make for a perfect gardening day.
I am planning to clean up the asparagus bed and plant my onions and peas and radishes.
Remember.... I need help with names for our little girly lambkins!!
