Monday we rented a rototiller (our’s somehow is always broken) and tilled our garden. We also: planted all our onions, transplanted all the starts in the house to bigger cups, and replanted more asparagus. Last year we planted a new bed of asparagus in the spring, but when we had the drought we forgot to water them and none sprouted. So this year we are trying again.

A few weeks ago we planted some lettuce in our cold frame, and with this beautiful weather, it has come up.
Crocuses are up, robins are singing, and lambs are here! Spring has definitely reached us, though the weather, I think, is trying to deny it. The lambs are so adorable, and we are excited that they are finally here.
Because lambs are so cute I tend to take many, many pictures, so, sorry, there are a lot to go through.
Our first baby.
Our quad set. That poor mama, she is so confused with all those babies.

This one surprised us. With two white parents we weren’t expecting black. But she is a cute, sturdy little thing.
These next two pictures are of our Easter babies.Though we love all are baby lambs, it is the Shetlands that we look forward to the most because of there diversity.
