A beautiful April afternoon

I have finally updated the Connecticut Country Store Events Page to show the next 4 months of activities including a rain date for the Spring Re-opening event with petting zoo which is scheduled for May 20th from 10-2pm!

The goats are wobbling about looking as if they might have the kids at any minute!  And they LOVE their food!  John tried to go hang out with them last night while I was driving home from New Jersey where I spent the day with family.  He said they would not give him a bit of attention just looking for food and yelling at the fence for me to come bring it to them!  They are getting very demanding!

Today was a beautiful day!  It is so nice to be able to enjoy the weather every day.  I love spending time in our greenhouse enjoying the warmth and the smells of herbs and flowers and tomatoes and dirt.  And visiting with our friends who come in to check out the new building or the new flowers or just to chat.  These are wonderful days when I get to spend them at the store.  I have met so many wonderful people and heard so many interesting stories.  So many people come in remembering the store when the Popple's ran it.  I hope to be able to help people as much as they did.

We are into another week of fun with new products coming in all the time :)  We look forward to the goats kidding on the 28th and I've got 6 chicken eggs under Harriette right now due to hatch the same weekend.  The bees are happy and buzzing around like mad.  I am able to check on them without the suit right now.  They are eating heavy sugar water and coming out when its warm enough to go hunting for more food.  It is a happy time at Arrowhead farms and the Connecticut Country Store.

Be Well!
