She gave us four lambs last year, this year it's three - two boys and a girl. Sunday at noon,
Ewenice gave birth to triplets and they are doing fine. We are monitoring them to make sure all are getting enough milk from mom, we may have to bottle feed one. They'll be really cute in a few days, right now they are all legs, their wool feels like popcorn kernels and they spend most of the time sleeping. Ben and Owen were visiting the farm with their families and witnessed the births, thus the two males are named after them and the female will be named Holly. Pictures will be posted soon.
COOL WEATHER IS AFFECTING CROPS
The cool weather is delaying the berry crop. We're starting to get a lot of requests for strawberries. We hope to have some fresh picked strawberries from southwestern Ontario in our market this week. Our own will not be for another two to three weeks. It is best to check in around the 15th of June. Pick your own berries will be at our Greenbank farm only this year.
The pea crop is loving this weather. Sweet peas and sugar snap (honey) peas will be ready near the end of June at our Markham Farm - fresh picked or pick your own. Call 905-887-1087 closer to the end of June for a more exact date.
