I have to tell you.........I got a call from my farm friend that lives not far from our farm. She has been looking for a Momma Sheep for me. She is the one that let us have the little baby lamb to care for. The sheep she has was given to her and she isn't quite what she wants in her herd. The Momma Sheep is pregnant and will be having a baby or maybe two. I have just given it to the Lord as to "when" He would find me a sheep.......tonight I got the call. It is "When" and I am grateful! I will post a picture when I get to go see her this weekend. Sooooo excited! Thank you to all who prayed with me. I just love having the Lord get all the credit! Amazing love.......He has for us!
It was beautiful yesterday, sun was shining and it was soooo warm outside. I went outside and looked at my garlic that I planted last fall.........they are so healthy and doing so well. Aren't they so sweet? Just "reachin" for the sky!
This last Monday afternoon, before the storm hit I planted a few things. First I put 10 of my 30 strawberry plants in. I will have to pick off all the flowers this year and not eat the strawberries. I am sure I will have to sneak just a few. It makes for stronger plants they say. I planted them in a protected area out in the Potter's Shed. The same place at the other end of where I put my garlic. If we get weather down in the freezing, I will cover the top with some greenhouse plastic I was given the other day. I was given enough to build a large greenhouse. Thank you JESUS. I would never be able to afford one, but have always wanted one. Now to learn how to build it!
Can you see that little green life?
I also put in some lettuce a week and a half ago and I had put it under a plastic clear tub.......I had tiny green babies!!!!! Talk about excited. I love green life! Shows me over and over how the Lord, who gave us plants which is recorded in Genesis........ and we are still enjoying His gift. I also put in my carrots and radishes. It was so nice to get to dig in the dirt!
Checked on my Miss Milly and Missy Thatcher tonight.......they are so huge and puffed up....... protecting their eggs so well. They will have baby chicks on March 8th. Just in time for my vacation.......they are such good girls!
I am still working on the seed swap partners, with my internet off it caught me off guard. We had 52 sign up........thank you sweet ladies for doing so!!!!!!
Hope all is well with you all. Thank you for all the personal emails to see if our family was okay. Also for the prayers for us......you are so so sweet!
Blessings and may God bless you all,
P.S. To nite I heard a robin singing up high in a tree.... as beautiful as can be.......has anyone else seen one? That means spring is getting closer.
