We just got home from a family vacation to California. Among other fun things we went to the West Coast production sale in Red Bluff California. We went to observe and to meet other people that have the same love for Dorper Sheep that we do. We accomplished our goal! Here are just a couple pics from the show
This was really cool! A small ultrasound machine! Now I want one :)
Let the auction begin!
Well, we are all caught up for now ;) for those of you who have farms, your know there is always something to do. I finally finished weeding the garden, so here is a quick update!
First pea has started to grow!
Cucumbers are doing well
Tomatoes are all flowering
Green beans are finally climbing the fence
Potatoes are flowering
Little clusters of grapes are forming.
Turbo watched over me as I weeded the garden this afternoon
All 6 of our sheep are all healthy and happy :) spoiled little critters.
We also harvested our first zucchini the other day! It tasted amazing :)
From all of us at The Sumerlin Dorper Farm, we wish you a happy and safe 4th of July!
Over winter I gained a new hobby! A good friend of mine taught me how to Knit. Since we have long wet winters, I had lots of time to do plenty of projects. Here are picture of what I have done so far.
My very first Knitting project. A Scarf for a friend/co-worker
My first hat! Not perfect, but pretty good for a first attempt.
Mittens almost Finished!
Another picture of it about 3/4 done.
Mittens done :)
2nd project- a "Camo" scarf for another friend/co-worker
The happy owner sporting his new scarf.
3rd project- a pair of fingerless gloves.
My fingerless gloves done and keeping me warm in the snow.
4th project- A riding scarf for Larry. Matches his riding jacket perfect! :)

A beanie hat and a "papa smurf" hat as we call it. I made it for a friends son.
A second set of fingerless gloves I made for myself. These one match my Carhartt Jacket that I wear at the farm.
I am in the process of making both of my sisters matching gloves :)
Work in progress
