Finally, an update.

Well, needless to say the past month has been really busy and I haven't had time to even think about posting anything here. So, I promise to do better.

We now have a total of 7 baby lambs--5 boys and 2 girls. It has been so much fun to see them grow more and more each day. They are quite possibly the cutest animals in the world. We still have Lenny and Carl, the two baby goats. No one seems very interested in buying wether crosses from us, go figure. So the new plan is to train them to pull a cart. I think that will potentially be quite cute, and I suppose they'll be more marketable once they have a "job." Of course, then I'll probably be really attached to them and won't want to sell them. Then we can just have them follow us around the yard pulling a cart, which will be amusing.

The garden is coming along. Of course we had a late frost this year and everything died so we had to replant it all. Good thing we started so many seeds. This is a picture of our peas growing on a window frame that we are using as a trellis.

The lettuce is doing really well too--we cut it every evening for salad with dinner and it grows back in time for dinner the next day.

What else? We're having the first annual "One World Farm Festival" this Sunday afternoon, so we invited everyone to come out to see the animals and stuff. I'll post pictures of all of the "city folk" in the country!

We're almost done with this semster, which will be great. Aaron actually fininshed his last day at the hospital today, so he is VERY happy. I'm hoping that he will do the blogging now that he'll have more time on his hands, because he is much more of a natural "blogger" than I am. He's quite witty and I'm sure will be much less boring than my blogs tend to be.
