One of the joys of living on a farm is the blessing of seeing how plants and animals grow and mature. Not long ago I posted about my vegetable sprouts, and I am happy to say most of them are growing by leaps and bounds. I have had to transplant many of them to larger containers already. My tomato seedlings are still spindly though. I can grow zucchini, cucumbers and most vegetables from seed like nobodies business but not tomatoes; they hate me. Tomatoes and me, it is like a bad relationship...so one sided...so disappointing. They all always start out well but then some of them will wither up and die before they ever get big enough to transplant outside in the garden. Once they are that big I have great luck growing them but it is just getting them all to that point that has been a challenge. So if anyone has any advice for growing tomatoes from seed I would love some tips while there is still hope for my poor, little tomato sprouts and me.
The goat kids are growing up fast. They look good this year and unlike the tomatoes... no love / hate relationship here! The pregnant does were due in two waves this year. The first half is over and the rest of the herd is due from now until the last week of April. The kids bounce around so much it is difficult to get decent pictures of them sometimes. I got this one at night when I caught a few of them sleeping on the overturned ramp to the milk stand.
In other news I have decided to try and get with the times and see what all this fuss about Twitter is. So if anyone would like to follow me on Twitter you can check out the sidebar of this blog and my user name is "ShilohPrairie" there. I am new to it and still figuring things out. Gosh I sound 72, not 32...shoot I mean...33, yea I tried to forget that birthday!
Edited to add: I am starting to realize today that my life might be entirely way too boring for twitter. LOL I also have a facebook page under the name Jennifer Fulton.
