Sheep, lambs and the Akbash Chloe

If you listen closely, you might hear the soil singing this morning. It’s a Beatles song — “Raiiiiiiiin | I don’t mind”

The soil, in fact, is rejoicing.

And so are the sheep, the lambs and our lead guard dog Chloe, an Akbash, which is a breed of guard dog from Turkey.

While the sheep munched and Chloe protected them from predators, we were busy on the farm planting and laying irrigation. The farmers’ market kick-off is just a week away, and we will be there with greens, meat and more. Soon, too, asparagus spears will pack our dedicated asparagus acre.

Either way, enjoy your moment of sheep and dog zen on this blustery March Friday — how welcome you are,  rain!
