Mid Week Update
Let's start with an announcement. It's been at least two weeks since I noticed any non-hetero (for him) pictures over at Bubba's place so I think I should maybe move his link back up into the "Cool Kids" section. I will think on it over night but unless someone comments that they have seen the offending pics posted and I missed them I think it is a done deal.
The crazy hits from an unknown source continue and peaked up to over 3500 in one day over the weekend. All going to the top two rated posts now. I still can't figure it out as no spam comments have appeared along with the increased traffic and no trace to the usual net crawler sites either. Also they seem to be coming from Europe with hits from France and England almost tripling as well.
Seedlings are sprouting out but one cat in particular has been doing more than his fair share of damage to them. We started them late so not sure what I am going to get this year or even when I am going to actually get the garden in anyway. We didn't bother with any cooler weather crops this year at all. I usually put in some peas, broccoli, cauliflower and kale but not this year. Two weeks ago it didn't look like we were even going to see Spring it was so cold and I just didn't get kick started in time.
I did get one raised bed turned over and started building a new one so something will be getting planted soon. Also it appears my strawberries did not survive Winter which means I have two full beds to re-plant now.
All the ewes and yearlings are now back into one flock and locked in the barn. Actually I opened one door up for them today so they could use one of the yards since it isn't suppose to rain. Annual shearing day is scheduled to happen this Saturday and I am suppose to help the shearer guy so I can kinda learn how to do it. The sheep are not suppose to get wet for about a week or so before shearing which is why we brought them all inside but since there is no rain in the forecast I felt sorry for em and let em out. The two rams are in their private stalls and Frasier the youngest ram is not happy at all. He destroyed his water bucket today and tried to head butt me when I went in his stall to get it.
I can't really blame him. We took all his bitchez away and placed him in solitary confinement just when the weather started turning nice. That ram has always been a bit unpredictable with women especially but I was usually able to turn my back on him without worrying about him taking a cheap shot. If he continues to be aggressive however he might be in for a surprise or two. He knows to stay away when the monkey grabs a stick.
Minor barn repairs are finished and so are sheep movements so it looks like tomorrow is back to bee hive construction.
It's wonderful to be able to get some work done in comfortable temps once again.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
