This is a continuing story of two people, four dogs, three barn cats, 8 pet turkeys, 6 guinea fowl, 20 ducks, 125 chickens, 1 rabbit, 5 alpacas, 4 sheep, a Llama, A Sicilian Micro-mini donkey, a Sicilian mini donkey and her baby and their life long dream to run a little 9 acre farm in upstate New York. After you read the blog entries, go to our regular farm web site, and then to our wonderful farm and fiber Shop that we built and opened in 2011. The links are on the left.
Spring is just around the corner…somewhere?? Far away???
Here we are on March 5th…and it looks like old man winter isn’t going to turn loose his grip for some time to come. In another four days, we will be turning the clocks ahead again (March 9th) and in another fifteen days, (March 20th) we will usher in another spring…not that the temperatures support the concept, that’s for sure. However, spring will arrive and even if we do get additional snow, it won’t last and we will eventually (and soon) see daffodils and hyacinths popping thorough the earth, soon to be followed by tulips and other springtime flowers we’ve planted. We will also begin to see springtime wildflowers popping through the leave cover in the woods along roads and in woodlots, signaling that no matter how tight old man winter’s grasp…he will ultimately lose it. Only a few weeks ago our friend’s house looked like this below. Within another few weeks, there will be lots and lots of little bunches of daffodils all around her yard and I’ll snap a few pictures for you to see then.
Look at the ice hanging down....

I’ve changed venues for my spinning wheel project. I moved from the west coast, moving a little closer to home, where I might be seen by more familiar faces than in California. My campaign project is still in planning mode, but here is a link where you can go to see it and PLEASE give me some needed feedback. I want to know what you think of the actual on-line campaign for the project, and the actual project and what I am doing. Big wheels, little wheels…what do you think? Check it out…click on link below.
