I thihk...shhhh..just in case I say this too loud, I think spring may be around the corner. Quiet, I don't want to scare it away. Temps getting above freezing by the end of this week. Sap running in the maples? This is the first year we're going to try tapping a couple of trees. Small scale to start, but if we do well, more next year, Lord willing. Our pastor makes the best maple syrup. I usually get stuck buying my maple syrup at the grocery. It's so expensive that I 've been making homemade syrup instead. Not as healthy, but not as bad as the corn syrup based ones at the grocery. We've run out of blueberries and rasberries for our pancakes. I also love the buttermilk syrup recipe that I got from soneone on this blog.
Today, it's to the dump we go. I guess they don't call it a dump anymore. It's a transfer station. I really don't like making this run, but it saves us a lot of money. The garbage man charges $1 a bag for taking it away. I can load up the back of the pick up for $5. And I only have to go about 4 times a year.
We have no babies yet. No calves, lambs or kids. I'm going to move the Angora does to their own pen today. They have been giving the other does a hard time and I don't want them to cause a miscarriage. We keep the horns on the Angoras so they can be pretty hard on the milk does.
Hope to have something more interesting to write about next time.
Go with God and God go with you.
