28 llamas are little intimidating, but lots of pygora friends to play with. They are on a farm on Whidbey Island where they will join the fiber-production business.
Meanwhile, at Seven Trees, the battle has begun – keeping Newt & Crichton from using the tater patch as a toilet. Ugh!!!
Nettle season is just about over. We didn’t get as many as last year, probably due to all the changes we’ve made to the micro-climate. Next season we’ll probably harvest some from the woods across the road. Garden activity has changed over from planting to watering & weeding, and a few lettuce plants are getting close to pickability. The ancient apple tree we cut back so hard has a ton of blossoms, but it’s too early to tell how many of them are setting fruit. And we need to get a couple of pear trees before it’s too late to plant them.
