Lots of action over the past few weeks...The puppies are lots of fun and keep everyone on their toes -- they are growing and getting faster and stronger. Can't wait to add some sheep to the mix so that they can learn how to protect them.
We've been exploring a bunch - checking out the fields further from the house, the pond, stream, woods and seeing lots of wildlife all around - Super sized fox, groundhogs, hawks and lots of other interesting birds, and lots of deer.
The most exciting thing happening (from my perspective) is watching the area we plan to farm in 2015 evolve from an overgrown fenced garden full of Johnson grass to a level, richly-soiled "field of dreams" as I like to call it - All thanks to my dad and his tractor and chainsaw skillz (how fun are chainsaws?!) He has mowed, cut, dug and cleared space. He also somehow got the water source to come back to life - A real-time miracle. It is super fun to look out the window in the morning and see the progress before our eyes.
