So far the over-wintered spinach has survived and the asparagus is starting to come up. I'm not weeding it till after it gets warmer, that way the grass and weeds will shelter the asparagus and it won't freeze. That's my hope anyway. :-)
Well, it's almost a full moon out there so I think I will get my native american flute and go give the goats a little concert. :-) Probably a short one since it's rather chilly out there. ☺

I'll be taking more pictures of all the kids, maybe even a video or two. One thing about it, even if you are having a really bad day, sitting out in the pen watching the kids bouncing around playing will cheer you up no matter what. There is no way you can stay sad after watching them for a while. They just exude joy.
It snowed overnight. I woke up to see two inches of snow out there! It all melted by mid-afternoon. It hasn't been really warm yet, except for two days last week in the 70's. Now it's in the 40's. I guess that is good for keeping the snow melting slowly in the high country so there won't be any major flooding around here. We had an above average snowpack in all the surrounding mountains this last winter. There still is a lot up there. It's melting slowly and soaking in pretty good. Our road dried out way faster than it usually does this year. The earth is thirsty!
I finally got all the goats combed now. Finished the last one yesterday. I've been washing a couple of fleeces a day. I'm going to finish up a few outdoor projects this week, then start on the dehairing next week. So many things to do around here and only so many hours in the day. I make a list of things to do each day. Some days I get them all done, and on others, I don't. The important things are getting done, though.
Well, that's it for now. I'll get some more pictures taken soon and get them on here.
