Still Waiting...

Minnie lost her mucus plug last night.  When I announced the news last night, I got two disinterested stares and two "Yucks".  I can still feel the lamb(s) moving around pretty vigorously, even though she is walking around swaybacked and sunken.  So it will be any day now, but I am hoping for the weekend, actually. 

Nothing much else going on around the farm.  It was rainy so long, the ground is still like pudding - difficult to do anything.  It was quite windy (50 mile an hour gusts), so I had hopes it would dry things up a bit, but it hasn't to any appreciable amount.  That's no excuse for the basically wasted greenhouse space, but I plan to tackle that this weekend.  Unfortunately, the greenhouse is quite far from the compost pile and the tractor working is an iffy proposition - which means plenty of work for my on-its-last-legs wheelbarrow.  Good exercise, anyway.

I am going to end up with way too many jalapenos - I threw an old pepper in a pot and there are about a million seedlings in there that need to be replanted.  I will have to make pepper jelly or really hot salsa again.... jars and jars of it.

Good luck, can't wait to see pictures of the new little lamb(s)!
