I see more.......Thyme in my future............
I got a wonderful opportunity to take a brief vacation from farm life. I went home to visit family for three days!!! ALL BY MYSELF!! oh ya it was awesome. I love the farm and would not change a thing but it is nice to get a breather.
We are in the process of drying off Gladys and Mable. Gladys is due to have her calf mid May and Mable is mid June. We are no longer milking Gladys and we are fast approaching that with Mable. I am happy and sad for this.. I will miss the milk and the time spent in the barn but I am looking forward to sweet new calves. We are keeping our fingers crossed for heifers.
The greenhouse is overflowing with plants. This spring has been COLD and wet some plants are in a holding pattern for warmer weather. I think we are scheduled for some of that later this week. I will be working long hours to get everything in that I have waiting. The herbs in the greenhouse are really enjoying the hot humid climate and have put on tons of growth I have noticed the biggest growth in the thyme it needs a haircut!! Time to make my famous onion thyme jam... yum!!!!
