Update From the Range

It should be painfully obvious that I have violated the first commandment of blogging: Thou shalt update regularly. My excuse is that I was afraid of violating the second commandment of blogging: Thou shalt have something interesting to say.

Five months between posts should probably count as starting over! And of course, now that I've figured out the blog thing, the kids at work tell me I should be on Facebook. Sigh. One technological hurdle at a time, thank you very much.

It has been a busy summer and fall for The Rare Hare Barn. We added a new anex for all the bucks, added some sheep to the to-do list, traveled from Kansas to New York and North Carolina for different rabbit events, gave a workshop on rabbit production at the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy's annual meeting in November. The rabbits continue to do well, although there have been a few challenges along the way.

And right now, it is cold, snowy and spring seems very far away. The bright spot is that the mailbox was full of seed catalogs today, as sure a sign of spring on the horizon as the first robin. It is really hard not to salivate at the sight of all those greens, tomatos, potatos, berries. I'm pretty much jonesing for a fresh salad right now, or beans picked fresh off the vine and eaten right there in the garden.

How about you? What is your favorite sign of spring, or the thing you look most forward to from the garden?
