Lamb invasions, 4x8 foot mysterious cement slabs in the garden, 93 chickens and French men
Our little girl is growing up. She is out of the house, still not potty trained and we are having empty nest syndrome. Ok, a joke indeed. She spent a few nights in our house, woke us up in the night to eat and didn't get the concept of using a set place to urinate. However, little lamb is growing, she is healthy and we are trying our hardest to teach her that she is in fact of the four legged, hay eating kind. If you look closely you can see a black polka dot in the center; that is her. She still follows us around, bahhs when you call her and is sweeter than any lamb we have ever raised before.
We became a WWOOFR (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) site. What this means is that people can come work on the farm and we host them; give them a place to sleep and feed them. Our first arrived yesterday. Antonin and Lenny are from the south of France. They began their journey sailing to the island of Guadelupe, visiting Cuba and then traveling their way north through Mexico. Along the way they contacted us and are here now. Wow!!! They are awesome. Antonin is trained as a carpenter and Lenny as a chef. In the day and a half that they have been here they have made a humanure toilet, worked on the garden fencing, created berms in the garden, helped feed the sheep, goats and dogs, and cooked great meals. You can see below the humanure toilet and the tent site. Viva la France! We totally dig them and their energy. PLEASE SEND MORE LIKE THEM!!!!
Plans for our near future: planting the seeds in our garden, irrigation system for the garden, solar composting toilet, the arrival and care of our 93 baby chicks, and whatever else that comes our way!
