Welcome to the Friday Farm Fix, a new series on Farmgirl Fare where I share a random sampling of what's been happening around the farm during the past week. Just joining us? You'll find all the Friday Farm Fix posts here.
The highlight of our week was a half inch of much needed rain.
Lots more photos below. . .
Twelve year old Whitey the Chicken enjoyed a sunny day outside.
We had another sheep working Sunday.
The mamas and babies enjoyed a mini Sheep Freedom Day, when we let them (quickly!) mow down the small pen behind the barn. We'll move them out into the front field to munch to their heart's delight in about a month, once the grass is taller and the hay is gone. You can read more about our early spring feeding and grazing practices in this post.
Soft and chewy oatmeal coconut cookies, a new recipe I've been working on. I think they're perfect, but my hunky farmguy Joe says I should probably make several more test batches, just to be sure.
Things are really growing up in the homemade greenhouse.
Onion planting time! Three years ago I bought onion plants instead of sets and we had our best onion crop ever. You can read more about my experiences growing onions from purchased plants here.
It's almost time to pick some delicious spring green garlic!
