Of Droughts And Ducks
After a slow start this spring, a lovely trip to a wedding in Denmark, we arrived home all ready to prepare beds and plant. All the hard work our former wwoofers put in is paying off as the raised beds were relatively weed free. I was so spring feverish before we left that I planted the carrots and Fava beans in early April. They weren't yet up when we got back three weeks later but a bit of watering and they appeared soon after. All seeds that I have saved or exchanged at Seedy Sunday.
So now we are in a daily habit of watering and moving of electric fences. One to keep our seedlings damp and second to keep the critters fed. The pasture is not growing much at all anymore and on this day (mid June) we are already finished 5 out of six pasture plots down the alley. We're saving the last one so that the wwoofers who are farm sitting for us will have an easier time of it.
Our eight momma goats gave us 17!!!!! kids this year. So much joy in watching them bounce around the backyard within their fence. As Anna calls them "popcorn goats! !!"
I'm composing this on my cell phone so here goes...me trying to add some pictures.
