Thoughts about rain and summer trivia....

Posted by Lewis White on

Rain.  Seems like in the last 10 years or so that you either get way too much (thoughts and prayers to Texas and West Virginia) or none at all.  Right now, we are in the none at all category.  Pastures are burning up and the water bill is climbing.  Luckily at this point we are not included in the latest water contamination scare but it's too close for our comfort.  We have contemplated a water purification system off and on for years but it seems like we need to give some hard thought to it and quickly.  Trouble is that...

Robbed at Maryland Sheep Festival....

Posted by Lewis White on

Thank you to all our customers and friends!  It's always a rush of stress and worry getting ready for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.  Somehow, when I get there and visit with everyone it's all worth it.  After a hectic day, I call home and tell Mrs. Little Barn who I saw or talked to, what's new in their lives or that I saw someone we hadn't spoken with in ages.....I answer a thousand questions as she calls the roll of names......people we have known from festivals all over the eastern U.S.......then we discuss what folks are doing with...

Fingers crossed this pear can hold on through the up & down temps.  Sure would like to see some fruit this year.  To tell the honest truth, we have tried to garden for years.  Our success rate has been......not so great.  Mrs. W, never one to give up, has declared this is the year we WILL grow food!  Well....,at least one of us has faith in this endeavor and, in...

What is up with....

Posted by Lewis White on

...the weather?  I know we are only partially through this winter but, so far,  this has been crazy. Hot one day freezing the next. We won't even talk about the rain.  Got most of the NSSS colors re-stocked.  Whew!  That was a lot of work in just a little over a week.  I'd like to take the credit but it was all the Mrs.  On the home front, we are definitely going to need to do some serious work on the pasture this spring to repair the damage. We lost a friend in the field last month.  We had to...
