Here comes sunshine! Wow – what a week of nice weather can do! For once I can comment on the pigs who seem to have just woken up. They run like colts around in the grass in the early morning and again in the cool night, while the rest of the day they lounge in their wallows in the sun. With their short healthy coats they are putting their energy into getting big – racing the lambs and goat kids for speediest growth. Turkey poults have been moved outside and we await another 60-90 to hatch. And the baby ducks get their fist pools this week!
The gardens are filling out with the prettiest spring produce we have ever had. Come find us at Carrboro, Greensboro, and Saxapahaw with greens like kale (think: Kale chips!), lettuce, chard, broccoli, radishes, turnips, cukes, strawberries and more. Duck eggs and chicken eggs will be abundant, but still come early or drop us an email to reserve yours. We will have chicken, turkey, lamb and pork, everything besides lamb sausage and chorizo is available. Have a fabulous weekend. … It is nice to be back after our little ride to Wolfe Island… Great to be staying around. Hope to see you at the markets!
