Happy Sunset

The perfect close to the weekend.


One filled with lacrosse travels, cake baking, more fruit tree planting (cherry and fig, replacement pear and additional blueberry), new smoker curing, cheese making, garden tilling and roost building...


...so that we could move the growing up chicks to their new home in a barn stall turned coop. 

And somewhere in all that came a few moments of rest and simple enjoyment.
Hope you found some happy moments too.

A Bit of Color


Spring has yet to make a strong show here in the valley. 



So I'll bask in any color that shows itself.


Even if it is in the form of fence line weeds.

A Visit from my Favorite Little Guys


Chick inspection,

with help from great grandma
and garden prep help.

Are Santa PJ pants what all future farmers wear to practice their skills?
Some of us planted potatoes,

and some opted to plant rocks.


Some just opted to spread a little love at every moment.

Facing an uphill challenge?


I'll race you to the top.

Lynchburg Feathers


A fun little scarf finished a few weeks ago,

Pattern-Dreambird

in time for the start of my current favorite lacrosse team's season.


Go Hornets!


Hope you have a great weekend,

Happy, happy, happy
Wednesday.

30ish inches of a 72 inch circular shawl complete.

A cold and dreary still winter day here at The Farm.
Relaxing and lovely none the less.
Hope your day is just as good.
