Farming in the Mid- Atlantic teaches you patience and planning–and learning to realize that your plans get altered. Weather and climate determine how most farming progresses.
You learn to manage weeds on the weeds’ schedule. Mow them down. They make more! It’s the give and take of nature.
Care for the flock when they need it.
Bake bread when the temperature allows it.
Spin in the Tour De Fleece.
In fact, spin almost every day for a month. Lots of yards get finished.
And even more… Spin a fine yarn
DO a bit of wet felting with the Guild.
And tend the flock once more.
Find them some shade.
And continue to care for the bottle babby until weaning in the heat of July. She’s doing fine.
Check your weeds again…They’re still growing, even when the hay has gone dormant.
