Well, Coley asked how the garden was going so here it is. Slow but
sure! I'm pretty paranoid about this unusually warm weather and the 10
day forecast is calling for 48F and 49F for 5 nights in a row. I need 4
cattle panels I can't afford at the moment or I would have radish,
carrots and lettuce going out in the dirt. I have onions and garlic out
already and it's a daily battle keeping the goatling off them.
I put okra, brussel sprouts and zucchini out already with more seed sprouting in case I lose these to cold overnight temps. The okra made it 3 days before Sissy had them chewed to pieces. Her head fits thru the panels and the boxes are small enough she could reach. Thankfully, the panels are keeping the chickens out and the other goats have not even looked at them.
The front garden spot looks great now that all the trash is picked up out of it and it's been turned over a few times.
All 5 of the new goatlings seem to be doing alright. Now, if the puppies would just quit barking at them!
Yes, all of 2013 and part of 2012 are missing from the blog. You can thank Mike H for that. Almost all of those posts were about our great friendship and our partnership in farming. You all know how that turned out!
