Sunday Dose of Cute: Lamb Whisperer

It's Secret Twin Stuff

Current lamb count: 18, including one born about 2:00 this morning and one born about 3:00 yesterday morning. Baby chick count: Holding steady at 8, but with one broody hen remaining there's still a chance for more. Number of lamb and chick and flower and farm and dog and cat and donkey and whatever else photos (not to mention recipes) piling up: Lots!

© Copyright 2009, the dark and late night foodie farm blog where last night as I stopped to open the front gate on the way home from laughing (and bidding!) non-stop for two hours at a benefit supper and auction for our new fire department and community center, I was surprised and thrilled to see that the fireflies are already out. I can't remember if they always arrive this early, or if it has something to do with this heat wave—but fireflies or not, there's something that just feels weird when it's 70 degrees outside at 4am in April.


  1. Those two sweeties are twins? How adorable! We're having a heat wave here in NJ. It was 93 yesterday and it's expected to top that today. Sob, sob. I'm not ready for the heat just yet.

  2. We're also having a heat wave and it topped 90 yesterday. I saw a single firefly, but it wasn't glowing, just happened across it in the garden.

    Those twins are too adorable and so soft looking.

  3. Every time I look at the blog, I think - oh - THIS one is the cutest picture yet! And then you go publish another one.......
    This is a truly cute Spring on the farm - and the thought of fireflies makes it even more magical!

  4. I JUST discovered your blog -- it is ADORABLE! I'll definitely keep checking in from the pictures.


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.
