Those green coats are getting well used .... took them off the 2 ram lambs Saturday morning, kicked them and mom out of the stock trailer into the big world of the rest of the herd. Got up Sunday morning only to find 2 new lambs, this time 2 ewe lambs, so they got the coats and are now living in the trailer since nights are still down in the low 30's.
Temps have been in the 60's during the day .... good for growing winter veggies, I have planted 36 Broccoli and 12 Cauliflower in the raised beds.
I planted 18 Lettuce plants in 2 old rusty wheelbarrows, I can move them under cover when needed.
Dollar is wondering where all the green grass is we should have by now. Farmers and Ranchers are really going to be hurting if we don't get some rain soon. All the hills and pastures are still brown and dry. Weatherman said this morning this is the dryest in the 100 years of record keeping.
Little bull calf is growing on alfalfa but would be much cheaper to feed if there was any grass in his pasture.
Wish there was some way to take some of the rain and snow that everyone is already tired of and send some of it to California. Ski resorts here would love some of your snow and the Farmers and Ranchers would love to have some of your rain.
Wishing you all a
***** Happy New Year *****
