I have several varieties of Hops growing. They are used for brewing beer, as a sleep aid in a tea form or dried and put into a pillow as an aromatic , like aromatheropy.
My sheep are fat and happy. At least thats what I think when they jump in the air and click their heels. I'm keeping a close Eye on them, cause the first ewe is due to lamb in less than a month. I'm gathering names now. I'm thinking of naming one after my grandma, she is 92 and deserves it. But her name is Eunice. Euni. Maybe I'll let her pick the one that'll bear her name. She went with us to see Alice in wonder land.-3/d. What a gal!
My bees have made it through the winter so far...Not out of danger yet. I'm looking at 3 or 4 hives this year. Maybe get another strain also. I like my Italians, calm, even tempered, very productive. My Minn. hybrids are a little testy, and pretty goopy, lots of propolis. Buy for now!
