Jewel safe

Jewel the formerly sick ewe had a very good day, yesterday. If you'd not known that she was sick, you'd never have been able to tell. She ate fairly heartily, drank, walked around, and lay down in the shade and slept like a log.

I can commiserate. I once had one of these bacterial diseases that knock you around like this. I had Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and felt like I was at death's door. I slept solid for something like 48 hours.

Thank Sir Alexander Fleming for both recoveries.

Now we have to get these sheep sheared.

Welcome to our Farm Blog.
The purpose of this blog is for Aimee and I to communicate with friends and family, with those of our students, and other folks in general who are interested in homesteading and farming activities.

The earliest posts, at the very end of the blog, tell the story of the Great Farm, our purchase of a fragment of that farm, the renovation of the homestead and its populating with people and animals. Go all the way to the last post in the archive and read backwards from there to get it in chronological order.

After getting tired of spam comments (up to a dozen or more per day), I required commentators to be Google "registered users". You can write me at if you have a serious comment or question and are not a registered user.

Spammers -- don't bother writing -- there's no way I will post your spam to my blog. Just go away.
