On the farm at this moment…

The work is consuming, between keeping the animals, the garden, the flowers and even the children watered! Lots of little friends have been visiting, Peter is quite happy!

I am thinking a lot about the upcoming breeding season, what ewes to breed to Earl (95.3%, Granby Mr Big son), to Hamish (92.93% dam is Elsa, sire is Earl) and what ewes will get the Swedish semen. I am really excited about these new genetics from Sweden.

The garden is plentiful although the heat has made it hard to stay on top of harvesting, watering and tending. I have been spending a lot of time inside with Peter and friends.

We have a lot of green beans, cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatoes if anybody is interested!
