Oh, and there is a covered gallon of goats milk and cheese culture setting on my stove to slowly turn to curds in 12-20 hours. It got a great and inexpensive chevre kit from New England Cheese making and can't wait to drain this cheese, salt it, and spread it over bagels on Shearing Day morning!
Riding lesson with Merlin in little bit, and then some unfortunate repair work on the truck. But it has to be done, turns out you need those front wheels to stay on the axles if you want to keep moving across the landscape. Makes me appreciate horses even more.
Only 4 spots left for the next season of the CSA! If you are interested contact me soon! If you join the 2013 season your wool starts growing soon as the sheep are sheared at the Potluck on Saturday! And you are welcome to come to the Shearing Day Potluck as well. It's not a workshop, there's no money exchanged, just an open farm day to work and help out with shearing and various other projects, but it will be a lot of fun and between the food and good people it'll be a big time.
Okay, I'm off to clean out the goat pen/horse stall. Enjoy your weekends!
