Lamb and Bat boxes and jam...ohmy!
This is my bat box. Our friend Jeff gave it to me at xmas time because I told him I always wanted one.
So one night we were sitting on our pals Cathy and Jeff's porch and just shootin the breeze.
Jeff came up with the idea of putting the bat box up on the light post across the street from the porch so we could watch for bats when we sat out there. Never thought it would happen but last night the plan was carried out.
What a guy. Can't tell you how excited I will be to see my first bat fly into that box.
Busy weekend. We drove to Leyden Glen Farm. We met Kristin Nicholas and her wonderful husband Mark and adorable daughter Julia. We got to meet the sheep, chickens and new kittens.
We also left there happy as could be with our whole lamb (no, not alive) and a dozen fresh eggs.
Our new freezer is finally starting to look like it belongs to us
On our way home from the farm we stopped for lunch at the Wagon Wheel Restaurant. THE most awesome gyro that I have EVER had. While we were there we picked up this locally handmade soda.
I also made some jam to go on this lamb we brought home. My neighbor Roxanne gave me Rhubarb from her garden so I made a recipe that I found at Gourmet online. It was Rhubarb Rosemary Jelly to be eaten on lamb.
