I have a lot of bits and pieces, random things to fit into the blog tonight. I willl begin with the view from the milking stand, which was so beautiful to me this morning that I had to go back after taking care of the milk to get a picture. In just that few minutes the fog that was lingering by the woods was gone. The oats are golden and almost ready to harvest.
You will see in the foreground part of the pig's extended pen, and beyond that, ForestRanger's paddock and shelter. Later on today it was moved to a new piece of ground and some fresh forage. While Kevin moves the paddock gates, ForestRanger go to the summer coop yard and hang out with Javier and the hens. Today we had a little sprinkle of rain while they were there. I may have mentioned before on this blog just how much goats dislike getting wet. Well, Ranger went over the fence and into the pole shed to get out of the little shower.
|Just ask Ranger... goats are water soluble!|
|Kevin spent most of the afternoon fencing the pumpkin patch|
As for the garden, well the beans are keeping me busy these days; did some canning today. The tomatoes are still slow, but picking up, and the bi-color sweet corn is almost ready. I peaked under the row-cover today and the cabbages are getting little heads and looking good.
I'll close with a photo of the sunflowers... such a happy image, they make me smile! Be well.
