The garden, the goat, and oh my first harvests

May 23rd, 2014 at 07:38 pm

I got my first harvests out of the garden. Just a handful of turnips and onions, but it made soup tonight taste delish!

The arugula has started to flower which means we will get to save seeds.

I expect to get plenty of seeds from the plot. Notice I don't weed much. I try to keep up, but after they have gone to seed, I let nature take control until I plant again.

The baby goat is alive well and sucking. We named her May and she is going to be a welcome addition to our homestead. Her mother is already giving tons of milk.

I have to keep this brief as I have a ton of work to do.

    Aw. I'm in love with the goat. And the weeds. We have plenty! My arugula didn't do much though.

    Sorry--weird question-- do goats not have round pupils?

  5. aukxsona Says:

    No, they don't lol. They do look silly right?

  6. Joan.of.the.Arch Says:

    Not silly at all. Looks cool. I know a city child who loves the goats at the zoo. I will have to tell her to look for the shape of the goats' pupils.
